    why are my posts being blocked?

    Dear Zim Sit,
    I was going through your site today and see that my website is not recorded as one of your”essential blogs” whilst Eddie Cross and Cathy Buckle’s are. I also see that you rarely, if ever, post my statements – for example in the last week I have posted two statements, one on Independence Day and another yesterday on Chinamasa’s volte face, neither of which you have posted. is there any reason for this exclusion?
    Kind regards,
    David Coltart

    First of all I would like to say wonderful blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your mind before writing.

    I’ve had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.

    I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like
    the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thanks!

    As the new president mulls over who to include in his cabinet, he must consider the following quotes; ‘MUGABE IS LIKE CREMORA’ (W. Shamu). ‘MUGABE IS MY FATHER AND IM HIS MOST LOYAL SON’ (O. Mpofu). Pliz lets not have the same dead wood praise and worship singers recycled into the new cabinet. C. K. Gokwe.
