Let’s do the ex­cep­tional

The Sunday Mail (Zimbabwe) - - COMMENT -

ED­I­TOR — This is in re­sponse to the ar­ti­cle “Town Clerk: The search is on”.

Dis­course con­tin­ues around the sub­ject. I say the so­lu­tion lies with all of us in Harare. We are the ones to bring out the good or bad in us. I agree that the list of can­di­dates is not in­spir­ing.

It’s time we do the ex­cep­tional for once. There is a Zim­bab­wean out there some­where who can make Harare a world class city. Let’s put all our ef­forts into find­ing that per­son. I chal­lenge all Harare res­i­dents to go beyond colour or creed, and bring the best Zim­babwe is giv­ing to the rest of the world.

A son/daugh­ter of the soil re­gard­less of their colour who can do the job and take us a step closer to mak­ing the door­way to the land of milk and honey. Let the search be bold enough. If the list is unin­spir­ing, let’s start afresh, and as I said be­fore, let’s head­hunt.

We know what we want and I don’t think we will get the best by float­ing an ad­vert. What Zim­babwe, Harare needs now can only be found through head-hunt­ing.

They are out there and wait­ing for us to let them know we have their back if they take the step to take up po­si­tions of lead­er­ship.

“Nyika vanhu, musha Matare”. Let the di­a­logue con­tinue for the sake of our peo­ple. Wil­son Ma­gaya
