Hi Mona, that’s right, the state of affairs in Zimbabwe has been very poor for years, to put it mildly... it wouldn't have been surprising if your former co-worker had gone back and wouldn't have been allowed to leave again. My sister-in-law is Zimbabwean though and she’s been able to visit home a time or two since she came abroad.
Zimbabwe is a beautiful country with really optimistic people, however – just like it is with several other African countries (including mine) - corruption of power prevents it from moving forward and catching up. Hopefully these recent bold moves will, in someway, mark the beginning of a new era for the country.
