Where does your newspaper stand on these issues? By not voicing your contempt is as good as giving approval.
Why don’t you newspaper guys take the so-called leaders and your readers to task over these issues.

Your reward is great in New Zimbabwe
EDITOR – People of Zimbabwe we are not cursed, but a blessed nation. For God so loved Zimbabwe that he gave us Morgan Richard Tsvangirai that whoever believes in him shall not perish of hunger but of obesity.
He was sent not to condemn Zanu (PF), but that Zimbabwe might be saved through him. He who believes in him is not condemned; he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in democracy.
The light has come into the world, and Zanu (PF) loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds are evil. For every one who supports Zanu (PF) hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. But he who does what is true comes to the MDC, that it may be clearly seen that his deeds have been wrought in democracy.
Blessed are those who are persecuted by Zanu (PF) for righteousness sake, for theirs is the kingdom of New Zimbabwe. Blessed are you when Zanu (PF) revile you, beat, torture and break your bones, burn your houses and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on MDC account.
Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in New Zimbabwe, for so Zanu (PF) persecuted opposition and journalists who were before you.
Make friends quickly with Zanu (PF), while you are going with him to the run-off, lest Zanu (PF) will hand you over to the Zanu (PF) Electoral Commission (ZEC), and the ZEC to ZIMONDI, and you be put in prison, truly, I say to you, you will never get out till the dictator dies.
Love your enemies and pray for them, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven, for he makes his sunrise and sends rain on both Zanu (PF) and MDC A1 and A2 fields. For if you love those who love you, what rewards have you? Do not even war vets do the same? And if you salute only your brethren, what more are you doing than others? Do not even Perence Shiri, Chiwenga, Chihuri, Zimondi and Sibanda do the same? You therefore, must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.
No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve MDC and Zanu (PF).
Do not be anxious about the run-off, O men of little faith. Do not be anxious, saying, “What about if they rig?” or “What about if we lose?” or “What about if Tsvangirai is killed?” your heavenly Father knows what you need.
Beware of false MDC supporters, who come to you and ask the whereabouts of victims of Zanu (PF) violence, but inwardly they are ravenous CIO’s. You will know them by their threats. A sound MDC person cannot carry a gun and a knobkerrie, nor can a Green Bomber carry food, water and medicines for victims of violence. Beware of the propaganda of Zanu (PF), which is hypocrisy. Nothing is covered up that will not be revealed or hidden that will not be known. Therefore, whatever the military junta is saying behind closed doors shall be heard in the light, the mass graves they dug in the dark will be discovered, and the MDC 51.7% they stole will be proclaimed on housetops.
Whoever votes for Mugabe votes for hunger, violence and torture, corruption, genocide, suppression of free media, election rigging, illegal seizure of property, mismanagement of state funds, will never know the truth and your wife and children will be raped at least twice a day by the militia.
Can the Green Bombers, military junta, war vets, ZRP and ZNA mourn as long as Mugabe is with them in power? The days will come, when Mugabe is taken away from them to the International Court of Justice in The Hague, and then they will fast. I tell you my friends, do not fear Zanu (PF), which kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do.

Cell phone blues
EDITOR – It’s so unfair how some of our network providers take us for granted. They increase their tariffs when they want to, exorbitantly at times, but they never improve their services.
As I write right now, it has been more than two weeks without us registering a network on our phones in Chimanimani with Netone being the provider. It’s so amazing how they block the lines when the window period expires.
How then do we juice up our phones if we are not getting the network? Tiri kutotumira maphone KwaMutare kuti amboiswawo mari, kuitawo here uku?
I hope with setting up of Econet in the area will give some competition and hence better services. And to Econet, we thank you for setting up in the area, but hazvishandika kana musina kuunza maline acho.
We need the lines so that we can use the services. We can’t buy them at black market because they are very, very expensive. We hope you will come and sell the lines soon.
Captives be set free!
EDITOR – How much longer is the world going to sit by and watch the dear people of Zimbabwe suffer in such a horrid fashion. Their blood is on the hands of those nations, who will not say ‘enough’ and stop the atrocities!!!
Dear God raise your right hand against the enemies of the peoples of this nation!!!
GOD OF PEACE, CRUSH SATAN UNDER THEIR FEET!!! IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS!!
Captives be set free!!! Our prayers still vigilant.
God be with you dear people.

A peaceful Zimbabwe is possible
EDITOR – It is imperative that as Zimbabweans we look at what we have achieved and then start to build from were we left. Violence is not in any way a solution to the problems we face as such it is my greatest conviction that we need our leaders to engage and NEGOTIATE for PROGRESS and PEACE.
We expect everyone of the leaders to make it clear that violence is not an option and as Zimbabweans, we need to shun such practices. Let us remain peaceful and respect the sanctity of life….

Where is African leadership?
EDITOR – With close to 50 people already dead in South African townships, hundreds beaten, some burnt to death, and property destroyed, the South African Police has made a request to have the military assist. I wonder if Mbeki is to say, ‘there is no crisis in South Africa”.
Bullets have been sporadically raining down the streets of South African townships, people ducking from marauding youths, close to 50 persons hospitalised with gunshots and stab wounds, shops looted and burnt.
President Thabo Mbeki, being the gentleman that he is, said he would set up a panel of experts to investigate the violence. Ever checked why this sudden uprising happened in a friendly nation like South Africa, whose president pays no heed to the cries of citizens of a neighbouring country?
These are manifestations of social and political problems that Mr. Mbeki responds to by burying his head in sand, because it was Zimbabwe. Now, it’s at home. Unfortunately, those who are targeted are foreigners, most of whom are Zimbabweans. Mr. Mbeki might need to check with Mugabe who would flatly refuse that there are any Zimbabweans in South Africa. For Mugabe, all Zimbabweans are safely tagged in Zimbabwe, away from the marauding South Africans.
Who then advises the other? Is this not the time to say there “are problems in Africa” and in African leadership?

Cry the beloved country
EDITOR – I get my copy of The Zimbabwean newspaper every Friday here in Cape Town. Your picture of the woman, who was beaten, has reduced me to tears, I cannot believe that any human can be so bestial as to thrash a child’s mother to be beaten like this.
It just goes to show how desperate Mugabe is and how can these creatures, (you can’t call them human.) have no respect for the mothers of their nation.
As I was also living in Zimbabwe, we always had respect for everyone where we lived in Mtoroshanga.
Cry the Beloved country to be reduced to ashes just to rule. No words can ever be sufficient to say enough about Mugabe’s genocide.
God Bless the innocents.

Mugabe should change constituency
EDITOR – It is a policy in Zanu (PF) that after losing elections you have the option to change constituency for the loser to win.
Didymus Mutasa after sensing danger in Makoni decided to flee to the newly created Headlands constituency. If he had to stand he could have joined Oppah (who promised to undress in case of Mugabe losing), Mushohwe, Porusingazwi, Made – just to mention a few.
Mnangagwa ran away from Blessing Chebundo in Kwekwe Central, Sithembiso Nyoni changed to Nkayi, Paul Mangwana went to Chivi. All these people enjoyed being appointed into parliament before Amendment number 18. However, Chinamasa lost because he lacks basic education about changing constituencies.
Chinotimba, who is currently on a murdering spree, was ill advised. Thumbs up to the people of Buhera for rejecting such dullness and well done, Manicaland province.
With the run-off imminent, I am advising the dictator to change constituency and try another of his own choice. This former coloniser, Bob, expects people to defect from the MDC and vote for Zanu (PF).
What will entice people to vote for him with inflation at 360 000%? No amount of torture or murder will force people to vote for you, Bob.
If he expects people to defect from the MDC let’s tell him that the reverse is true. I cannot vote for somebody who has tortured me, killed my mother and friends.
All Zimbabweans, come June 27 let’s make sure that this man gets zero votes at each and every polling station across the country as what happened during the harmonised election in Bulawayo province. Mugabe was neck on neck with Towungana.
I want to advise the military junta that your time is up. Bob you have expired. You were best before 2002. Zimbabweans I am feeling the flavour of a new beginning.
Bob, hamba kahle.
South Africans know not what they are doing
EDITOR – How can South Africa (SA) have the World Cup at all?
What would be the reaction in SA – who are so far down the ladder in terms of soccer excellence and ability, having been given a bye without any play-offs – should their team fail to proceed beyond the group stages.
SA, like Mugabe, who demanded Blair keep his England while he keeps his Zimbabwe, should thus be left to keep their country while FIFA takes the World Cup elsewhere.
Yes, there is poverty, but poverty has never made cannibals of people in the 21st century. For whatever reasons, there is no excuse for SA to act the way they are doing.
If FIFA should move the world cup then SA would suffer collectively and take it upon each and everyone to teach and rehabilitate each one. What people, what society can do so much harm and hate and hurt to a fellow people?
Is this the same people who were offered bases in Zambia, Tanzania, passage in Mozambique, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland and training in Ethiopia, Libya and Egypt?
God Bless Africa, and forgive SA, for they know not what they are doing.
