Letters to the Editor

Let's stimulate local trade 23 March 2019 Trade is a very important industry in every part of the world. 
Address street children's plight 23 March 2019 EDITOR — A wide range of factors has made the street children issue in the country a difficult challenge to deal with. 
Theatre can be a powerful tool in edutainment 22 March 2019 Theatre has the potential for being a democratic medium, in which the audiences may play an active role in medium-programming, and therefore in producing and distributing messages. 
New farmers should preserve our land 22 March 2019 Our agriculture seems to have been improving despite the harsh conditions of climate change but we need to guard against the evil of monoculture that is growing maize on the same piece of land year after year.
Warriors need to be cautious 20 March 2019 EDITOR — On Sunday, our national team have a chance to return to the continental show piece once again.
Stop politicising cyclone donations 20 March 2019 EDITOR — It is thoroughly dispiriting to hear that some people in this country are so divided to the extent of finding comic relief through the suffering of the masses.
Reform now before it's too late 16 March 2019 EDITOR — Someone once said that it is never too late to turn back and do the right thing. What Zanu PF seems to be blind to is that in their exclusion of all and anything not perceived to be Zanu PF they are more and more isolating the very people they supposedly went to war for.
Selfish Zanu PF govt behind our suffering 16 March 2019 EDITOR — Zimbabwe is my motherland. My heart bleeds when I see Zimbabwe in such a terrible state. Our elders took over the reigns from colonial masters and we all celebrated because we thought we are now in full ownership of our country.
Govt must urgently solve doctor's grievances 14 March 2019 Government should seriously look at concerns raised by senior doctors over the dire situation at the country's public hospitals. Yesterday, the senior doctors took their grievances to the street as they have realised it is the only way to draw government's attention.
Enact sanction-busting measures 14 March 2019 Editor — Following the Unilateral Declaration of Independence by Ian Smith on November 11, 1965, the international community imposed economic sanctions on Rhodesia. The Rhodesian said, “if we have to eat sadza, then we will, to hell with the Scottish shortbread.” 
Repent now and fix our ailing economy 14 March 2019 Editor — That Zimbabwe is on a downward trajectory is no secret. In fact we have been in descent mode for many a year. It is a tragedy. And the fact that the powers that be spend a considerable amount of time denying the truth and defending the indefensible does not help
Littering the streets is a bad habit 13 March 2019 Littering is a growing disease among Zimbabweans especially in the capital, Harare.
HCC should revise its parking laws 10 March 2019 On Tuesday I was  driving  from Marondera to Bulawayo in my Honda Fit.  Around 11 am, I arrived in the Sun-shine City of Harare.
Disappointed 10 March 2019 EDITOR — Traditionally, meals in Zimbabwe are prepared three times a day (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and it is my concern that with the so-called new dispensation the Energy and Power Development ministry should encourage the use of gas for cooking so as to save power.
Govt must unite citizens to save our economy 7 March 2019 Austerity measures announced by the authorities ostensibly to stabilise or resuscitate the comatose economy, are in reality an act of removing a life jacket to a situation that had drifted to the deep end.
Make healthcare affordable. 7 March 2019 It is sad to note that more and more people are not able to afford healthcare facilities in this country.
City fathers' plan to give councillors stands improper 6 March 2019 The Harare City Council (HCC) is at it again making sure that councillors are given unrealistic packages. Why should councillors be given stands in their area of residence?
Entrepreneurship the way to go in Zim 6 March 2019 Entrepreneurship is the act of creating a business or businesses while building and scaling it to generate a profit.  However, as a basic entrepreneurship definition, it's a bit limiting.  The more modern entrepreneurship definition is also about transforming the world by solving big problems.
Address doctors' concerns urgently 5 March 2019 EDITOR — The looming showdown between doctors and the government over demands that have not been addressed since the bargaining agreement in January this year that saw doctors ending their industrial strike is worrisome.
Africa must make the most of its mineral resources 5 March 2019 EDITOR — The mineral industry of Africa is the largest minerals industry in the world. Africa is the second largest continent, with 30 million km² of land, which implies large quantities of resources. 
Farmers should take farming seriously 2 March 2019 EDITOR — For over a decade now Zimbabwe has managed to transfer land ownership from the few white commercial farmers who were just about 4 500 to the indigenous black farmers now numbering over 300 000.
Teachers' unions salary demands, an utopian dream 2 March 2019 EDITOR — It is undeniable that the cost of living for an ordinary Zimbabwean is increasingly becoming expensive, but the latest RTGS$3 000 salary demand by Teachers’ Unions is astonishing to say the least. I for one sympathise with every citizen of this country in such trying times where the pri...
Government should create employment 1 March 2019 EDITOR — The government must urgently work on creating meaningful job opportunities for the thousands of unemployed graduates.
Let's unite in calling for sanctions removal 1 March 2019 EDITOR — The adverse consequence of economic sanctions imposed on Zimbabwe is detrimental to its economic growth as it negatively affects the living standards of its citizens.
