Mutilating the injured

WHEN I visited my brothers and sisters in Mbare on August 12, I saw a number of residents digging very deep pits in their backyards.

On asking why, I was informed

that the City of Harare authorities had instructed them to bury the rubble of their demolished houses in their backyards. A case of concealing evidence in the event United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan visits Zimbabwe!

I would like to ask Local Government minister Ignatious Chombo and the commissioners running the City of Harare: “Why are you insensitive? Why mutilate an injured man?”

My heart bleeds.

I could see a sense of hopelessness and helplessness. Who is going to help the povo from this banditry?

E Makate,
