#AMHVoices: Of soldiers, football and pool


#AMH Voices 22 January 2013

A concerned reader sent us a collage where he captured an army officer picking up passengers at Harare’s Market Square Terminus.

According to the reader: “This soldier was picking up passengers at an undesignated area at Market Square- Mushika-shika on Tuesday. It is believed that pirate taxi drivers are using uniformed forces like soldiers to avoid having their pirate taxis impounded by police.”

See sequence below

Everyday municipal and traffic police are in running battles with pirate taxi drivers.

CONCERN over government’s commitment

I can tell the government is not at all concerned about the welfare of the Zimbabwean citizens. With most of the country’s citizens scattered across the globe because of lack of employment opportunities back home, the Zanu PF regime cannot deliver its election promises. Where are the two millions jobs. Why are the industries still shut down in Bulawayo and countrywide. The $79,00 increment for civil servants is a mockery. Bhora Mugedhi


SA work permits

CAN you please find out what the South African government is planning to do when most of our temporary work permits expire end of  this year?
