    Let me guess! Is there an election soon?

      Your guess is right on spot. Yes, an election is around the corner; & as usual it’s time for zanu pf to show us how much it cares about poor people by dishing out cash & kind. It’s not vote buying anyway; It’s just that zanu pf develops too much love of the poor on the eve of each & every other election. Yes, even to the extent of building bridges for their “beloved people” at places where no rivers exist.

      I can also further guess & swear that the cheque is post-dated to some in August (post-election of course). I will leave it others to guess whether it is a real cheque or a dummy; this time around?

    Five diamond-mining companies were initially expected to contribute $10million towards Zimunya-Marange CSOT, to give a total of US$50. When is the balance of US$45million going to be paid to the suffering people of Mutare District?
