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
