AS MUTARE football pundits, we should rally behind our team always. Gusha Boys need all the support to give us better results at the end of the day. It is high time people know that teams like Caps United and Highlanders are no longer as strong as they used to be. There is nothing to be scared. Our coach should field good strikers who can withstand pressure and every match should be taken seriously. A culture of winning must be upheld till the end of the season.
Mutare City Boys are in the PSL to stay. — Terrence Mwedzi.
ED’s administration should set up tight regulations to combat social media abuse and the use of hate speech as a matter of urgency. Some elements among us are being paid to talk bad about our peaceful nation. If ED puts tight measures as soon as possible, this can instil confidence in the country as we focusing on rebuilding our economy. — TM.
It is refreshing to realise that Government has extended the successful and life transforming Command Agriculture programme to tobacco production. Surely, tobacco sub-sector has become the main stay of the economy. Whoever comes up with this idea is genius. We thank you. — Gold Leaf Grower, Mutare.
I am a resident in Chimanimani village and I am deeply worried about the way our council has neglected the Tilbury road residents. Our road is in bad shape and now we are forced to park our vehicles in the village where they are exposed to theft. We have talked to the officials but up to now they haven’t responded positively. The road only needs gravel. Surprisingly they are found busy carrying gravel at their offices to make a car park. We are affecting our children’s right to education as we fail to drive them to school. Funerals are becoming a challenge as we fail to reach our homes due to the bad state of the road. Can council consider the residents’ plight? — Chimanimani Resident.
MDC-T has exuded its undemocratic colours by failing to given the three senior officials it fired last week a chance to give their side of the story. There are two sides to a story as such they should have found each other to iron out the folds that are causing differences. That’s political maturity. This idea of entertaining whims, wits and guts to flex muscles to outdo one another only serves to develop cracks in the party foundation, weakening it in the process. Their hopes of winning the forth coming elections are next to zero as their house is deeply divided. — TV Viewer.
There seems to be an upsurge in ritual murders with torsos being discovered week in week out, leaving us the ardent readers of The Manica Post perplexed as to what has really crept into society. The sanctity of life seems to have been condemned to the rubbish receptacle. However, perpetrators must be brought to book. The pictures are too ghastly to look twice before a meal as they pose a throw up risk. — Post Reader.
Uniforms play an important role in branding and positive identification purposes. City of Mutare is no exception. We are made to understand that their municipal police don civilian attire on duty ostensibly to stealthily pounce on law breakers. In the process members of the public are left enveloped in doubt as to whether the person presenting himself or herself is a genuine or bona fide council worker. This move is open to abuse and brews corrupt negotiations. This observation was long held but is opportune in the wake of the recent high speed chase with a kombi in which an employee is reported to have been `kidnapped’! As a matter of fact a tow vehicle is supposed to crank and tow broken down vehicles and not match performance with able bodied vehicles, in this case kombis. Parameters! And still on uniforms, teachers should wear suits and mistresses costumes to dignify the noble profession .— CTM.
Lotto and gaming institutions should play their corporate social responsibility roles by coming to the rescue of `SOS’ and distressed health calls from the populace. Let us all join hands in making our country a better place to live. Together we can do it. — Crispen Tendai Masenhu.
The Minister of Health should set up a `health distress fund’ to cater for the needy with dire health conditions. Contributions and donations should come from products and activities that compromise the health well being of the nation. For instances tobacco production levy, cigarettes sales, alcohol, wines, spirits, prostitution, to name but the major. Specialists should be invited for in-house induction training to stop Zimbabweans flying outside the country for medical treatment. Let us bring the services here. — Patriot.
