The Zimbabwean reaction on social media was mixed and reflected conflicting sentiments. Many were outraged. Others were skeptical about the international media coverage of the story. Zimbabwe is going through serious economic challenges. Most people have pressing needs — food, shelter and employment. Thousands of workers have been laid off after a Supreme Court judgment earlier this month that allows companies to terminate workers without offering severance packages. Itai Dzamara, a Zimbabwean democracy activist, has been missing for more than four months. His family, friends and sympathizers are worried about his safety and whereabouts. Unlike Cecil’s story, Dzamara’s has not received much international coverage.
And the most powerful way of healing its venom is to actually find out this reason. You may hear that it is an inner part of you that is angry, or wounded, or feels wrongly suppressed. Or it’s a closely-held value or belief you once cherished, which you have since been pressured to cut off or betray.
