EDITOR — To think we are faced with severe problems due to the drought and here all our top officials spend all their time fighting one another shows clearly that the one and only thing they care about is themselves.
I very much doubt whether any of them will suffer from the effects of this drought — especially those living at State House where lavish meals are provided. These people have lost touch with reality and have no clue what it is like living in the rural areas where money and food is so scarce.
Good leadership skills have been absent for the past 30 years and the current state of this once-highly productive country proves it.
Blaming Rhodes, the imperialist West and everything white doesn’t resonate anymore.
Ian Smith was so right when in 1979 he tried to warn those British ministers that the country would end up in chaos under the rule of the current leadership.
No time for recrimination — time to help each other to try and overcome the effects of this ugly drought.
