What do the people say?

More and more Zimbabweans, both at home and all over the world, are using social media to communicate. The Zimbabwean is committed to helping Zimbabweans everywhere to claim and access their right to give and receive information. So every week we stimulate debate on a number of issues affecting us. These are your responses in this week’s issue:

Muyedzo Chisadza
Muyedzo Chisadza

Do you think the corruption exposes have been fuelled by the succession battle?

Definitely yes; and it’s the only reason! – @BelieveCitizen

Yes – @LangGwatura

Of course why are they exposing it now ? – @aggiechiss

A no-brainer, I got it like the 5th time I heard about it – @MikeStaresinic

What do you think Jonathan Moyo is up to?

Just fire and jail them to show zero tolerance on curruption. – Muyedzo Chisadza

Like all of them, he’s trying to save his own skin. Don’t rule out the possibility that he feels safer if aligned with an established faction. All of ZANU-PF are trying to promote their own successor for the top seat while saving their own skins. Survival of the party, as a party, is low on all their lists of priorities. – Magari Mandebvu

Are you happy for ZNA generals to be paid $10,000 a month from taxpayers’ money?

The distortion in the economy are structural – need concerted effort to address them – @TweetZimbabwe

Better we pay than they loot – @ConorMWalsh

If ever this salary audits are taken to every gvt department and public sector it will be surprising – @SobhaStephen

Mugabe can pay them from his private fortune stolen from his people lodged in Malaysia China – @Alexweir1949

I thought there only a few dozen left surely we can afford $100,000.00 each per year for a few more years left? – @Keziwanai

Do you think Mugabe will agree to the war vets’ demands again, like he did in 1997?

A welfare fund must be created to cater for disadvantaged or unemployed Zimbabweans, war veterans included. We have to assess the performance of the economy. We can develop and expand mines, industries, factories and farming.That will create a wider revenue collection base to enable a welfare state. We must consider the whole population and dessist from being selective. A good number of our war veterans are in various influencial positions and must assist others. I admire a Zimbabwe for all. Ngatidyei tese HUCHI. – Moyo Bhowasi

Highly unlikely – @TapiwaMunjoma

The cupboard is bare. – @ConorMWalsh

Do you think war veterans should be given more money and diamond mining claims?

$18000 and diamond mining rights reflects on nothing but greed [email protected]

Has your opinion of Mujuru changed as a result of her statement?

Those peple in Zanu they are all evil people are suffering, living in confusion they are not doing anthing they are busy looting state funds. For our nation to be a better place we don’t want anyone who have anything to do with Zanu to rule it. Those from Zanu should go to international world criminal court – Kurauwone Chinyama

IYes Ngwena for President ava amai havazive zvekutaura nezvekusataura. How can she say that nyika ichi chema nekushaya mari? Handina option Ngwena muoffice. – Stewart Jemwa Harunavamwe

Never liked her as a person let alone head of State. – Clemence Risenga Mavasa

She said the wrong thing there it now like she doesn’t want corruption exposed it is for the media to let out such things coz no one else would have done it had it not been publicized by the media. She shot herself in the foot – Mathew Tumbare

Wolves in sheep’s skins – Godknows Hungwe Bvute

Totally changed – Edmore Mwedzi

At the end of the day she will be handpicked to succeed the aged dictator my point being that not even the voting population would ever cast their votes for her ! – Absalom Zulu

How can Joyce rejoice in her fellows looting our motherland? – Victor Zivira

The remarks were so unfortunate. The truth of the matter is that we are destroying our own country in the name of having liberated Zimbabwe. We just can’t the demon of looting go away. – Enock Kwinika

4 sure great damage to her image. – Daniel Tendere

Mine has charged at this time we can not afford to support someone who thinks the party is more important that national issues – Terry Utah S

Do you think mass public protests will achieve anything in Zimbabwe? Would you be prepared to participate in one?

Yes, mass protests can make or break the ruling regime. I’ve cherished a society which live in peace, harmony have equal oppotunities. Which is an ideal, I hope to live for achieve. This is an ideal, for which I’m prepared to die. – Kenneth Baloyi

And they blame everyone & anything other than themselves for the worsening economic crisis, soaring unemployment rate. A party which sees it fit to host a million dollar birthday bash while some of its own are homeless following floods. – Bee Tee

Too much fear and cowardice breeds poverty and misery on the land – Kurauwone Chinyama

Big YES – Bobo Mririma Isaac

Nothing surprising. That’s the type of people who vote a 90 yr old to lead them for 5years – Peter Masanga

We are more than ready – Michael Mapani

Why not? – Washington Zhomwa

Yes we want strong man n woman we r ready – Kudakwashe Dion Mabeza

Why do you think Tomana has appealed against the Telecel Supreme Court victory?

I think that Jane Mutasa and Tomana have a deal together, he knows that if he is prosecuted he can exhume the rotten rat – Irvine Mupfuri

It’s obvious someone inside gvt is part of the deal or he that can open a lot of cane of worms – Memory Ngwenya

How would you advise George to deal with this Facebook problem?

Laugh it off if u a not gay , as for your girlfriend let her go if she can’t take u at your word – Memory Ngwenya

Do rural women make better farmers than men?

Women have more hands on experience than men, as they provide the labour – @YouthAgrarian

Rural women are more involved in farming than men, though they need capacity building in decision making – @farirai_mageza

What happened to black is beautiful? Why do people continue to use skin lightening creams, despite the damage they have been proved to do?

Very sad indeed, this seems to be a growing trend especially with men in the entertainment industry. – @QueenNosipho

He is scared to be humiliated by his cronies who dont to change their evil ways of stealing. change things – Mehleli Ndlovu

Leave the oldman to see his grandchild. All those active who are around him are 100% responsible for the poor service delivery and salarygate issues. – Rees Chitova

Are you happy about the introduction of the new currencies? If not, why not?

Unfortunately Mugabe is not gonna order the RBZ to print US dollars, an interesting situation – @dmagidhi

Inonzi bhora mughedhi iyoyo munoti chii chinobuda kubva kutuchembere twakadaro twapera zano yuan imwe yacho ndaitadza ini. Munyika yababa. Ndizvo zvamakada zanu marwadzo hama dzangu – Robson Robie Mutimusakwa
