ACTING President Emmerson Mnangagwa is spot on regarding parastatals. He is very correct in saying unnecessary board meetings are bleeding parastatals. The same appears to be happening in the private sector where some non-executive directors are meeting more than 12 times in one year. Why should non-executive directors meet so frequently as if they are involved in the day to day running of these businesses? It is a way of clandestinely stealing from the unsuspecting shareholder with the aid of executives of course. — T Munongi.
PLEASE let us not wish for the worst to happen in our country because we will still be the victims. I do not understand people who want this country to go to the dogs. We are all Zimbabweans and have to live here at the end of the day. Instead of wishing ill on our Government, let us urge the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe Governor Dr John Mangudya to work tirelessly in ensuring that the supply of both fuel and electricity are adequately funded. — KK
THE public sector stinks of corruption and incompetence. Until the Government ensures there are systems and controls in the public sector our country’s development will remain elusive. Taxing the productive and efficient private sector and then misuse the resources is an evil that should be eradicated. It is a serious national problem. This is why good public sector policies agonise, for an example land reform and allocation. Our ability to fight negative external forces such as sanctions is also weakened because of corruption and sheer incompetence. — Cde Mzvinavhu.
The Premier Soccer League (PSL) has every reason to take the Zimbabwe Football Association (Zifa) to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. What Zifa are proposing cannot happen at the eleventh hour. It does not make sense to want to relegate four teams now at the end of the season. Amendments of the constitution must be made first then if they are approved they then should come into effect next season. — Gift Dzitiro.
