  1. High time people start resisting some of these stupid punitive measures being put to suck the last drop of blood from the suffering public who are already so impoverished. How do we survive?

  2. ZIMRA and the pathetic people who work there are the biggest impediment to economic growth and Foreign Direct Investment in Zimbabwe. With Zimra in its present predatory form, we shall sink quicker than the waters of Lake Kariba. But who cares? Be afraid, Zimbabweans, be very afraid.
