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
