Celebrated Zimbabwean Journalist, Haru Mutasa who works for Al Jazeera has social media in a frenzy after she posted a cryptic melancholic message on micro-blogging social network, Twitter, saying, â€ť She feels she will die youngâ€ť
â€śI think I am going to die young â€¦. there I said it. Donâ€™t be shocked when it happens . Donâ€™t know why, just a feeling.â€ť Tweets Mutasa.
Sometime back in mid-October, the decorated journalist who has worked for other influential organisations such as SABC and CNN, announced that she was going to quit Twitter as she found it to be abusive.
â€śOff twitter hopefully for a while â€¦ tired of meeting pple who canâ€™t be open minded, respect different opinions without insulting you. At the end of the day your personal life and family is what matters. Happy to leave. It was timeâ€ť
However, her sentiments have not been welcomed by the Zimbabwe society.
“Problem is we donâ€™t accept depression as a societyâ€¦hanzi aiwa get it together unechii chekuti you are depressed but that hurts us more cos we also been told not to talk about our problemsâ€¦.vicious circleâ€¦.hope she will be okay.” writes one sympathizer
