MR Editor, any transparent measures to eradicate corruption in the public and private sectors augurs well for our economy. Yes, the fingered have rights and can defend themselves legally. But the law must lawfully deal with all criminals in this country without fear or favour. Everything has a beginning and an ending in life. We should not fail to fight corruption in this country. — Cde Mzvinavhu, Harare.
THERE was clearly yet another sign of failure by the city fathers and the Minister of Local Government. How is it that a whole settlement is allowed to be established illegally? It seems Government continues to side with the land barons and not with its people. Most of these land barons are politically connected, and as such, they will simply go scot-free. People continue to lose their hard earned cash via bogus housing co-operatives because the Government is not doing enough to protect people from these crooks and provide decent housing for its people. — Edward Chifamba, Norton.
THE 100 000 stands for civil servants are a welcome development. However, we call for transparency in this process because it may end up being hijacked and not benefiting the civil servants. Let’s have a computerised database that detects any fraudulent attempts of double dipping and trying to swindle the system. — Jona Dube, Mutare. MDC-T as the major opposition political party in the country is only showing that they have slid further down politically. They should be full of promise — so that if one day they come to power then we know we have real leaders and not clowns who lie on Parliament benches as a way of expressing themselves. Why behave like touts? Even Morgan Tsvangirai should be ashamed. Chamisa, their vice president should also be ashamed indeed! — Cde Jairos Tapfuma, Harare.
