TO the Honourable Minister, of Labour and Social Welfare, as well as the National Social Security Authority (NSSA) management, I would like to find out what measures these two departments are taking to cushion their clients. As we all know pretty well that the present situation is quite bad, I would be grateful if I can get comment from these, especially NSSA. — Ndaba Zabantu, Emganwini, Bulawayo.
IT’S good to know that the Government has banned the use of foreign currency by pharmacies and its threat to descend on “house pharmacies”. The issue of cement should also be dealt with urgently as it is derailing work on major building projects countrywide. The rogue cement dealers are charging US$10 or $45 if you are swiping or using the bond note. Something must be done urgently. — Sesizwile T Marimbe, Bulawayo
EVERY third Sunday of November marks the World Day of Remembrance For Road Traffic Victims and it is extremely sad that this year we remember the two horrific accident incidents of the August 30, Muzvezve, Kadoma kombi and bus accident that claimed 13 lives; the November 7, Rusape near tollgate’s national bus disaster that claimed 46 lately the Matabeleland South bus inferno that claimed over 40 people’s lives. I appeal to all our road users to exercise extreme caution during this rainy period and during the coming festive season. — Lovemore Kashawo, Harare.
