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.
