The Pre­mier Soc­cer League and ZBC’ de­ci­sion to broad­cast Cas­tle Lager Pre­mier Soc­cer matches on tele­vi­sion is no­ble. This wise move will in­crease view­er­ship and the gen­er­al­ity of Zim­bab­weans agrees with me. My ap­peal to ZBC and PSL is to con­tinue work­ing to­gether to de­velop the game of foot­ball. It is time to move with times and help PSL brand to grow. In this modern day and age, view­ers and foot­ball lov­ing-fans de­serve some­thing bet­ter. — Ter­rence Mwedzi, Os­borne Dam.

The ma­jor­ity of Zim­bab­weans are be­ing en­cour­aged to be clas­si­cal and re­al­is­tic in their ac­tiv­i­ties. In real terms, many of us we are now fo­cus­ing on pol­i­tics than econ­omy. This is the time to fo­cus on bread and but­ter is­sues. The use of hate speech on so­cial me­dia plat­forms is now our daily bread and this will tar­nish ev­ery ci­ti­zen’s im­age and coun­try at large. Let us be ma­tured and jus­tice must pre­vail. — Con­cerned Ci­ti­zen.

I am glad the gov­ern­ment has reaf­firmed its com­mit­ment to fight­ing cor­rup­tion. The econ­omy killers must be named, shamed and jailed. Pe­riod! —TM Mutare

Zim­bab­weans let us sup­port Gov­ern­ment ef­forts to fight cor­rup­tion. Our prob­lems at times are self in­flicted. When is the last your bribed some­one? As cit­i­zens of this great na­tion at times we are the ma­jor cul­prits. A lot of us have ac­cu­mu­lated wealth through kick­backs and blame it on Gov­ern­ment. The teacher who of­fers ex­tra les­son at a cost to par­ents; the ven­dor who bribes a mu­nic­i­pal po­lice; the pub­lic prose­cu­tor who bribes the mag­is­trate and fi­nally the Kombi op­er­a­tor who bribes the VID of­fi­cial – are all guilty of cor­rup­tion. —Tawanda Mh­langa, Dangamvura

The pass­ing on of Lawrence Sim­barashe is so touch­ing. Bhonzo as he was called by many was an en­ter­tainer par ex­cel­lence. I re­mem­ber as a teenager watch­ing Timmi na Bhonzo on ZTV in the 90s.We have lost a great ac­tor who would let ribs crack. He was hu­mor­ous, po­lite, hard­work­ing and hum­ble de­spite his fame. May his soul rest in peace. — TM, Dangamvura

Gov­ern­ment is­sued Statu­tory In­stru­ment 122A of 2017 to em­power the po­lice to ar­rest cash deal­ers. They have flooded our streets. It pains that I got $20 from my bank yet near Bata young men are seen with brick of cash. My take is there are some fat cats mak­ing money out of the cash cri­sis. Take the money from the streets and give it to banks. I am tired of go­ing to the bank and get noth­ing. — Des­per­ate De­pos­i­tor

Who­ever is be­hind the clean­ing of storm drains and pub­lic ar­eas in Sakubva and Dangamvura should be thanked. The ar­eas are now clean and coun­cil should up their game in refuse col­lec­tion. — Dangamvura Res­i­dent

Our courts should jail driv­ers who have be­come a men­ace to our so­ci­ety. The pi­rate taxis are now a ma­jor threat to life on our high­ways. They are over­loaded and driven at high speed. Surely some of these driv­ers should join For­mula 1. —Road User

The Bible says ‘the love of money is the root of all evil’. Last week’s lead story in The Weekender bares it all. In­fight­ing over money is now com­mon in churches. It is funny that the church, which is sup­posed to be the light of the world, is em­broiled in the worst fights over mon­e­tary gains. I am in pas­toral work my­self and my ad­vice is that church funds are pub­lic funds and should not be stolen. This habit of steal­ing Heav­enly trea­sures brings curses upon us. Let us work hard and in­vest to make money and live large. — Con­cerned Clergy

Peo­ple who elect to be si­lent when some­one is do­ing some­thing wrong are ac­com­plices. Pas­sen­gers who re­main quiet while be­ing driven to death have them­selves to blame. Do not cry foul. —An­a­lyst

Money us­age must not come with a fee. The mo­ment a premium is charged and paid, it be­comes a prej­u­dice. It seems mon­e­tary author­i­ties are fail­ing to grap­ple with ba­sics, let alone tough meat to chew. The use of mo­bile money is not free, so is swip­ing bank cards. We won­der who got this craze to make money out of the use of money which must stand at face value with no strings at­tached. And those be­hind the idea are laugh­ing us silly as they ac­cu­mu­late money gained through chi­canery. — Crispen Tendai Masenhu

Most of­fice bear­ers of pre­vi­ous ad­min­is­tra­tion were busy school­ing and amass­ing wealth at the ex­pense of the elec­torate. Now, they are dis­ap­pointed by elec­tion re­sults like a gun­man who finds wet gun pow­der. — Ob­server

A lot of cash was dis­cov­ered and re­cov­ered from prom­i­nent peo­ple’s homes but there is lit­tle to show for it in cir­cu­la­tion. Who is stash­ing cash and thus sab­o­tag­ing the econ­omy? — Wor­ried Vil­lager

Po­lice must clamp down on VID of­fi­cials who is­sue out li­censes to un­de­serv­ing ap­pli­cants. Most kombi driv­ers do not have five years driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. Short cuts or jump­ing rungs is cost­ing lives. It is easy to fish out those who es­cape the mesh. Go through records and cre­ate a mon­i­tor­ing data base. With ICT, it’s easy to de­tect sys­tem crash­ers. — Con­cerned Road User
