Thank you Faith for your response to letters published in the paper in recent weeks. As the newspaper we cannot stop people or readers from expressing their opinions or views on matters that directly or indirectly affect their lives.

We encourage people to equally share their views as long as those do not contain any form of hate speech, discrimination or sexism. As enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic, everyone has the right to the freedom of speech and we cannot simply take that away.

Please understand that these are letters and express the views of the authors, they are in no way a reflection of the views of the paper or its staff. Should these have been articles written by our reporters, balanced reporting could be brought into question.

We encourage everyone who feels strongly about this or any other matter, to write to us and we will gladly publish their views as long as they do not infringe on rights of the others.
