IF you closely watch how Zim­babwe soc­cer is run, you can tell that it is run by peo­ple who know noth­ing abou foot­ball. How can an as­so­ci­a­tion with no money have over 60 Divi­sion 1 teams? Musa Man­daza where is Zim­babwe Saints? — ES.

FOR in­ter­est’s sake the twin grannies who ap­peared in your sis­ter pa­per, The Sun­day News, said they have two chil­dren each. Who are the fa­thers of the chil­dren? Do they re­mem­ber the late Chris “Shiki” of Mpopoma later En­tum­bane? — E.S. Bu­l­awayo

NIGE­RIAN prophet at it again. This is not the first time TB Joshua has made a false prophecy. Re­mem­ber the MH370 which dis­ap­peared? He later ad­mit­ted that he was wrong in proph­esy­ing search teams could find the miss­ing plane. Now he tried his luck with the US elec­tions and missed by a mile. — Kitsi Ya­tota

PLEASE let’s be se­ri­ous about women’s soc­cer in Africa. AWCON win­ners will re­ceive a pal­try $80 000. To­tal bud­get $250 000. Which means Mighty War­riors may only get $20 000 if they fin­ish last of their group. Guys, is there any incentive for women to play foot­ball in Africa apart from qual­i­fy­ing for the World Cup? I would have ex­pected their prize money to at least equal the Un­der 23 Afcon whose to­tal bud­get is $1.5 mil­lion. AWCON’s to­tal bud­get is equal to the prize money for the run­ners-up in the Un­der 23 com­pe­ti­tion. — S Watemwa.

RE­COV­ERY isn’t instant, ben­e­fits from the Statu­tory In­stru­ment 64 of 2016 are based on long-term pro­jec­tions, not short-term gratification. The greater pic­ture is that a re­cov­ered lo­cal in­dus­try will save money spent on im­ports, res­tore jobs lost due to the col­lapsed in­dus­try and cre­ate down­stream ben­e­fits for re­lated sec­tors. It is not to im­me­di­ately sat­isfy the pocket or tummy. It takes time, but the ben­e­fits are al­ready mea­sur­able and ev­i­dent. — Mpengo

HILLARY Clin­ton paid dearly for Iraq. The pub­lic feels she is part of the now dis­cred­ited ad­ven­tures in the Mid­dle East and I am happy she lost al­though Amer­i­cans have voted a racist into of­fice. At least we will un­der­stand bet­ter the mo­tives of the gov­ern­ment, un­like the Clin­tons who op­press with a smile. — Al­bert.
