Power of the independent press extolled

IN Xhosa-dominated South Africa, they talk of the power of “X”. Surely, in Zimbabwe it must be the power of the truly free and independent press that rules supreme.

My letter, “Sold contaminated food at Chi

cken Inn”, (Zimbabwe Independent, June 16), highlighting the poor service by Innscor’s Chicken Inn outlet in Gweru, indeed brought a swift response from the company although I am not really satisfied.

It’s at least better than many companies in Zimbabwe would offer. And here I am particularly thinking of one monopolistic beverage manufacturing company that has a “We don’t give a damn” attitude.

Thanks to you and to quote Paula Abdul: “You’re just the greatest”.
