THE VID has al­ways been the most cor­rupt or­gan­i­sa­tion in the coun­try even when the econ­omy was good. I doubt if em­pow­er­ing them will im­prove any­thing. They just need to in­tro­duce fi­nan­cial penal­ties for faulty driv­ers and get them to com­pen­sate the vic­tims. Also care­less pedes­tri­ans should be given tick­ets. In Europe driv­ers know that they can­not be reck­less and care­less be­cause there is a heavy price to pay. The re­spon­si­bil­ity is placed on the op­er­a­tor of a dan­ger­ous ma­chine. In Zim­babwe I think pedes­tri­ans need to be kept in check too if they are care­less. — Shiku.

EGYPT lost the match against the Mighty War­riors, The ref­eree won. The only goal of the match came af­ter a du­bi­ous free kick was awarded af­ter three or so touches. Af­ter a 50-50 chal­lenge the ref­eree then re­alised that a the­atri­cal Egyp­tian was still down af­ter almost 20 sec­onds. Through­out the match, the ref would lit­er­ally win posses­sion for the vis­i­bly fear­ful Egyp­tians. The de­bate on whether she was bi­ased or not was then set­tled when the Mighty War­riors equalised. — Neu­tral Jus­tice.

I AM shocked that up to now there has not been a sin­gle re­ported ar­rest in con­nec­tion with the re­cent van­dal­ism of road signs around Zim­babwe. The peo­ple who have been so vo­cal against the forth­com­ing bond notes could be the prime sus­pects. Pres­sure groups who seem to have made a ca­reer out of caus­ing alam and de­spon­dency, should also be probed on these un­law­ful in­scrip­tions. If caught, the per­pe­tra­tors should be in line for a harsh sen­tence which will serve as a warn­ing shot to other Zim­bab­weans that even in the pres­ence of dif­fer­ing opin­ions and views, de­struc­tion of property is not the an­swer. The hideous graf­fiti is not a re­flec­tion of the views of the coun­try’s cit­i­zenry and as such, it should not be al­lowed to stand. City fa­thers and other re­spon­si­ble au­thor­i­ties should re­store our road signs to their usual state with im­me­di­ate ef­fect. If some­one passes through our roads they may get a wrong im­pres­sion on the state of our other­wise of our cities and towns. Na­tion build­ing will be a higher hur­dle with de­struc­tive el­e­ments in our midst, they need to be tracked down and locked away for a very long time. — K Mavet­era
