MDC-T president Nelson Chamisa's newly appointed spokesperson once told his followers on Twitter that the bullet train thing is madness.

Said Dr Nkululeko Sibanda, "This bullet train thing is madness. There will not even be customers who can afford the train. That's the first when you are making an investment. What is the market. There is no use for such a train, even if there was a budget surplus to waste."

It is not clear whether Dr Sibanda has changed his views on the bullet train thing.

Chamisa promised Zimbabweans a bullet train should they vote for his party in the coming elections.

Addressing party supporters, Chamisa said the bullet train would travel from Harare to Bulawayo, a distance of 446 km, in 35 minutes.

Though positive, the promise attracted mixed feelings from the public emanating from the practicality of the distance and time.

Supporters of Chamisa opined that the debate was majoring on the minor, whilst on the other hand, some are reasoning that the contents of Chamisa's promise is pertinent - it goes beyond questioning distance over time.
