A pertinent question after reports of vehicle purchases for MPs recently:
@TVYangu: Why cant Ministers & MP’s import their own cars from Japan, we have a look east policy after all? #263chat #twimbos
@LizNyamuda: Why is it buses for public transport #ZUPCO are imported from China and our Ministers get Germany top brands!
A few thoughts on Child Forced Marriage and a #263Chat event held on the topic on 22 May 2014:
@DoroGrebe: #childbride I wish we could find #solutions in discussions like this. Buy we need #awareness and #action on the ground #fightrape
@Chiwashira04: The saddest & most challenging part is that such marriages are often secretive initially & supported by families
@MAKOSITODAY: @263Chat a #childbride is robbed of her childhood
@Angelberti_: The rural community is the most affected in #childbride , yet are not represented in such talks, what can be done?
@vikkiwalshe: Police victim friendly unit is not seen as friendly to abused women. Should we rename it survivors friendly unit?
@TaNaKaGreg: At 13yrs, no child can consent to marriage.It is blatant abuse.Violation of child rights!We must act against this now.#childbride
@HindsightCapi: Pick 10 random teenagers from your neighborhood. I bet u can’t find 2 of them married. Stop with the fake outrage people
As Africa Day approached:
@RudoNyangulu: As #AfricaDay approches I got 2 thinking What makes us #AFRICAN It can’t just be skin colour or postcode
A Zimbabwean student in the diaspora asks an important question about returning home after studies:

Reaction to the kombi accident which killed 10 people along Seke Road recently:
@SirNige: How often do we complain in kombis when the driver is speeding or is clearly breaking the law?
@vonniliciousxx: apart from breaking their screens further endangering lives what is the law enforcement doing?
@rcmlimited: I think the owners of these kombis are the ones to be jailed, coz they are responsible for hiring the wrong pple
@lykmoor: We need matured drivers to drive the kombis, not the kids we are seeing these days
Timely advice for 2014 and beyond:
@inindini_roruu: 2014 words to remember “Don’t get too comfortable”
@BelieveCitizen: It does not need a rocket scientist to tell you that the restoration of commercial farming will restore industries will restore the economy
