DOUBLE amhlophe, interviewer “Constituency Talk” (evenings ZTV programme) presenter for being more outward bound, then to the interviewee the Makokoba constituency MP Retired Colonel Tshinga Dube for being on the ground. It was befitting, appropriate and satisfying to see a dutiful legislator actually sitting comfortably on a modest desk, pen and paper in hand and talking to those who voted him into office, one by one. In reality picking “pick and shovel” lends a senior citizen better health status and therefore more days on earth. The retired army officer is still very much around. Other senior citizens countrywide, stay busy — here is a model for you. — Cleo Mutare, Bulawayo
THE time allocated to the ZTV evenings programme “Skipha Mabatshi” is too short. The programme includes on its list some golden oldies. If possible give it up to 45 minutes or an hour. Programme presenter “exhume” from the archives I’ll Take You There (The Staple Singers) then without knowing it my jacket will drop off me on its own as I ready myself to display my jiving skills to the amusement of many. — Cleo Mutare, Bulawayo.
WELL done to Graeme Cremer for his maiden test century in the first match against Sri Lanka. He definitely put in a captain’s knock and while Zimbabwe is still trailing Sri Lanka I think that this can be used as a confidence booster for the team to rally around and grow. I like the spirit in the Chevrons and think we can only get better from here. — Taurai Zenda.
