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.
