  1. Why should a certain area bea no go zone what are the police doing why are they being paid . Who gives the authority to make other citizens the untouchable. If we have good police and good govt all these idiots maShurugwis the machetiz must be arrested and sentenced to life imprisonment and even death sentence. We don’t need animals like these thugs terrorising our people. Its because of zanu that’s why why we have these fools causing havoc. This is nonsense
