DUE to our econ­omy’s de­cline par­ents adopt early child mar­riages to solve their hunger is­sues. One should know that no one can put out fire by pour­ing petrol or paraf­fin onto the fire. We can­not solve a prob­lem by adding an­other prob­lem. The best way to solve a prob­lem is to deal with it not to run away from it. I urge all par­ents to as­sist the girl child by ed­u­cat­ing them not by sell­ing them. The coun­try is fac­ing high vol­umes of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence and main­te­nance has be­come a big in­dus­try/busi­ness be­cause some of th­ese girls are still im­ma­ture to set­tle down for mar­riage and they still want other re­la­tion­ships. — Anony­mous, Bu­l­awayo.

THE rel­e­vant author­i­ties should ad­dress the sit­u­a­tion on our roads ur­gently. It seems like ev­ery­one don­ning a po­lice uniform has be­come a traf­fic cop. Gone are the days of prop­erly set up road­blocks as we are see­ing ev­ery cop hold­ing spikes, ready to van­dalise cars ev­ery­where. — Ger­ald Chiseni, Harare.

THE Zim­babwe Premier Soc­cer League is go­ing to be very in­ter­est­ing this year. There are a num­ber of teams with the po­ten­tial to chal­lenge for the ti­tle. As a High­landers sup­porter, how­ever, I am con­fi­dent this is our year. We are go­ing to walk away with that tro­phy. — Nosipelo Maphosa, Gweru.

I WOULD like to urge re­spon­si­ble author­i­ties to ex­pe­dite the re­mod­elling of the Harare-Beit­bridge road. We have lost many lives and each time we grieve, but move on as soon as our minds drift from the hor­ren­dous ac­ci­dent. It is vir­tu­ally im­por­tant to keep the con­di­tion of our high­ways at the back of our minds. — Dar­ling­ton Dzuda, Mu­toko.

IF the two Zanu-PF com­rades, who ten­dered their res­ig­na­tions, did ac­tu­ally so­licit do­na­tions for the party be­fore clan­des­tinely con­vert­ing the pro­ceeds to their own use, a re­port to the po­lice should be made. The crime could be wide­spread. Apart from resti­tu­tion, jail terms would dis­cour­age such ac­tions. I trust and hope that if Cde Nomthandazo Eu­nice Moyo in­deed stole the money meant for the party she should also ten­der her res­ig­na­tion as a Gov­ern­ment min­is­ter. — Chi­ro­rodziva, Harare.
