THE sud­den turn of events points to the tragedy of his­tory be­ing twisted to favour the egos of one man. We have oth­ers’ sac­ri­fices for the lib­er­a­tion of this coun­try buried like corpses just to make one man the star­ring fig­ure of the strug­gle. That same man feels en­ti­tled to the strug­gle to be­lieve any­thing for the good of the na­tion with­out his seal of ap­proval is wrong and only him is right even when he is lost. Ser­vant-leader re­la­tion­ship is not about in­still­ing fear, abus­ing the law to nail op­po­nents and loot­ing. What con­sti­tu­tion is there to talk about when pre­vi­ously the same man broke the laws or his poli­cies like match sticks. The His­tory of Zim­babwe should be re-writ­ten for peo­ple to fall into their right­ful places. Chimurenga is the peo­ple’s strug­gle. Hail ZDF. — Richard Mahuhushe Chauke

Ar­ro­gance is his war against age, hardly walks and talks but still wants to be leader. The peo­ple have long made a state­ment to see his back and he just needs to rest. That is what we want to see hap­pen­ing. Fi­nally, the great­ness of a na­tion is in the col­lec­tive willpower of its cit­i­zens and not pulling in dif­fer­ent di­rec­tions like wild horses. Hail ZDF. — John, Chikanga

There is a plot to sink the ship. Op­er­a­tion Re­store Legacy was about sav­ing Zim­babwe and its peo­ple from an­ar­chy and where chaos en­sues, it is the army that ex­tin­guishes the flames. Mu­gabe could not be re­moved by elec­tions and ne­go­ti­a­tions. He played his cards well for his per­sonal po­lit­i­cal sur­vival. It is here that the army tanks rolled to stop the rot that had en­gulfed the na­tion. We had crimes cleared at ral­lies not in the courts of law. In short, this is not about Mnan­gagwa in power. The Pres­i­dent has noth­ing to lose. Chi­wenga has noth­ing to lose. Mo­hadi has noth­ing to lose. These are our lead­ers to bring or­der in our na­tion for pros­per­ity. These are our lead­ers to bring back the lost con­fi­dence and pride in the na­tion. It is about restor­ing hope plagued by cor­rup­tion and it is those who de­stroyed the econ­omy mak­ing the loud­est noise. — Mu­ram­binda

Half a loaf is bet­ter than noth­ing but a drop in the ocean counts to noth­ing. The Con­stituency De­vel­op­ment Fund is just a vote buy­ing scheme con­sid­er­ing that not a sin­gle pub­lic project is quoted be­low a mil­lion dol­lars, then what is a pal­try $50 000 for? We should de­velop our pol­i­tics to get out of the steel fences of praises and re­ceiv­ing to vote. This stran­gles de­vel­op­ment of what­ever form. — 0771871589.

There is al­ways money to have work­shops at Vic­to­ria Falls and Rain­bow Tow­ers. There­after we have fi­nan­cial con­straints to im­ple­ment the res­o­lu­tions. We must change the way of do­ing busi­ness to fight poverty in the coun­try. Re­sources can­not be wasted just to meet, eat and sleep to tell us there is no money to do what we met for. Do the work first and meet to cel­e­brate your achieve­ments than gather like lions around their fallen prey. — Luke Thomas. What was Mutare City FC’s home ground last sea­son be­fore be­ing pro­moted into the

PSL? This way teams to be rel­e­gated have been de­cided in the board­room. Play­ing away from home is to make sure these small teams from small towns get into the PSL to be rel­e­gated. ZIFA can­not be trusted with money to even help in the de­vel­op­ment of sta­dia let alone soccer across the coun­try. Ev­ery sea­son, we get the same rea­sons of the same circus. — Avid Soccer Fan.

South Africa has 41 bil­lion Rand of un­claimed Min­ing Pen­sion Fund. Most of these ben­e­fi­cia­ries could be Zim­bab­weans, Malaw­ians, Zam­bians and Mozam­bi­cans. From his­tory, it is known that SA’s neigh­bours trekked down South to work in the mines. Some work­ers re­turned to their home coun­tries and most of these pen­sion mem­bers have passed on with­out get­ting their ben­e­fits. Their de­pen­dents and sur­vivors as ben­e­fi­cia­ries of this Pen­sion Fund Scheme could be in the dark. What com­pli­cates mat­ters is that when some peo­ple get into South Africa, change their names or use fake IDs just to get jobs. How­ever, this can­not stop the Govern­ment from im­me­di­ately help­ing its cit­i­zens who are aged by now, can­not read and write but have their money as pen­sion con­tri­bu­tions ly­ing idle in South Africa. — Shinga Mushandi

We have some leg­is­la­tors mak­ing reck­less state­ments. Maybe that is how they win the elec­tions. In­flu­ence com­pa­nies and Govern­ment de­part­ments at their con­stituen­cies to em­ploy lo­cals but for­get that their own have taken away all the jobs at Beit­bridge bor­der post, clin­ics, schools, toll­gates and any job in both the pri­vate and pub­lic sec­tors to leave our youths to cross the Lim­popo River and work in South Africa. We are also peo­ple, never any­one’s pets. We should all suckle from the breasts of the moth­er­land. No Zim­bab­wean, black or white and of what­ever tribe is a for­eigner in Zim­babwe. — Hun­gry Too, Chipinge
