Toll hike unjustified

EDITOR — The government should feel for the suffering public.

They want to take even the little that the people have, they are being insensitive.

What is needed is a robust roll-out of investor-friendly economic policies to get the economy running again, rather than squeezing ordinary poor citizens dry.

It’s strange but l feel like we are now being held hostage by our own government, which has no clue of how much they are making us suffer.

Our government should realise that a unilateral decision to hike toll gate fees will affect the poorest of our rural communities the most. They should at least have mercy on us.

They can fool some people some time, but they can’t fool all the people all the time.

Editor- As the festive season draws near, our roads are bound to be very busy. The most worrying factor is that of road carnage that needlessly claim preciouys lives each time we approach this season. I, on behalf of all responsible citizens, implore the government through the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructure Development to put practical measures in place in order to curb this scourge. I suggest that road signals that have been vandalised should be replaced so that our road users are kept informed. the Ministry must also put fence along the major Highway, particularly the Harare-Beitbridge road. By the way, the Harare-Beitbridge road is the busiest on the land yet it is the worst narrow road. the road has become a death trap on it own. What is the ministry doing to fight road carnage? Lastly, the pain killing gimmick of pothole filling is not effective because the patches do not last long. Pot holes are a major contributor to the accidents occurring along our roads. May the Ministry, through ZINARA find better ways to reduce the problem of roaed carnage while giving value to human life.
