In response to Kasukuwere suspends Zvishavane town boss, Shibobo says: Local Government minister Saviour Kasukuwere is busy suspending elected officials from councils at will, but who is looking at him and has the power to suspend and investigate him? There is clear evidence that he is and has been as corrupt as they come. Yet he walks scot-free! Are ministers immune from prosecution? Is that why all criminals are falling over each other to join the Zanu PF gravy train so that they operate with impunity?

In response to Misihairabwi-Mushonga savages male politicians, Man Kenya says: The MP’s argument is valid and applicable in developed countries, but, unfortunately, not in Africa, where people consider personalites at the expense of competence. No wonder we remain socio-economically impotent. A lot of civic education is indeed necessary.

Harishari says: I agree with MDC Proportional Representation legislator Priscilla Misihairabwi-Mushonga. In so far as she says a coalition will not remove President Robert Mugabe from power, rather, it is the electorate, the Zimbabweans, who can do that, albeit at a huge cost, and knowing my people, and unless something drastic happens, they are not prepared to do that.

Addmore says: True, with President Robert Mugabe gone, it will mark the end of abuse of the military, police and the intelligence community for election purposes, since these institutions are State functionaries and above politics. They need not be contaminated by it. They are professionals, only waiting for a command to act in the event of foreign hostilities or rogue elements within the State itself. With Mugabe gone, it will also mark the end to violence, political intimidation, abuse of traditional chiefs and the youth at election times, which has become the ruling party’s style of running the country. With Mugabe gone, it could also mean an end to one-man rule, extravagance of his lavish spending in foreign lands and other celebrations like his birthday bash, amid poverty and hunger. An end to Mugabe’s rule means also an end to power hunger.
