Don Chigumba: "I want to join my fellow Zimbabweans in condemning the recent embarrassment and attack of Thokozani Khupe by alleged MDC-T supporters on 22 May 2018. The incident happened soon after Jonathan Moyo was declared a fugitive and a wanted man by the Interpol. These two developments should be taken as a sad chapter in the history of our country and quite a number of people are wrongly taking the incidents as tribal."

Babbot Muchanyerei: "I have been observing, albeit with disdain, public comments being made by some of our senior politicians in the country. It appears our beloved country has been too polarised politically to the extent that sobriety and objectivity is waning too fast among some of us. I am going to tackle a few issues in support of my argument."

Tinomudaishe Chinyoka: "There is a reason why I don’t normally read Alex Magaisa’s ‘Big Saturday Read’, and it is not just because it is always unnecessarily windy and boring to read, though there is something to be said about that. Rather, it is because I have always had the sneaky suspicion that if I could spare enough time to read, I would end up writing a scathing reply, and I sincerely hope that this one is not. Because you see, there is a reason why those who cannot do, teach."

Hopewell Chin’ono: The crooked relationship between the politician and the briefcase businessman http://nehandaradio.com/2018/05/20/hopewell-chinono-the-crooked-relationship-between-the-politician-and-the-briefcase-businessman/ http://nehandaradio.com/2018/05/20/hopewell-chinono-the-crooked-relationship-between-the-politician-and-the-briefcase-businessman/#comments Sun, 20 May 2018 10:06:09 +0000 http://nehandaradio.com/?p=177777 Hopewell Chin'ono

Hopewell Chin’ono: "It is going towards 4AM as my plane flies above the Congolese basin headed for South Africa. I have been playing Bob Marley all night and his words that if you take anything from a politician, you will be paying for it all your life are as true today as they were then when the reggae superstar made that observation. I am wondering where Zimbabwe will be after July with a citizenry that seems powerless to negotiate for a better deal."

Tafi Mhaka - "Never mind the 10-million Ugandans who live in absolute poverty; Museveni still believes that after 32 years in power, he can solve Uganda's woes. And the former guerrilla leader appears to have inspired Joseph Kabila: the DRC strongman, who avoided holding elections scheduled for December 2016, seems intent on staying in power by hook or by crook — even though the constitution bars him from running for a third term."

Hopewell Chin’ono: "The irresponsible lie published by the Herald newspaper insinuating that the leader of the MDC Alliance, Nelson Chamisa, spoke about impregnating women shows why there is an urgent need for media reforms in Zimbabwe."

Hopewell Chin’ono: "The opposition politicians must know what to oppose and what to support unless if they want to lose respect in the eyes of the citizens.

Once the sensitive black needle touched the 45-inch vinyl record spinning on our golden brown stereo player on any given sunny afternoon and Lou Rawls’ rich and mesmerising baritone voice boomed through the massive speakers fixed on the dark brown carpet in our small living room, a sweet and subtle rush of youthful happiness would proceed to serenade my mind and feed my imagination."
