The Vice President, his excellency Dr. Muhamadu Bawumiah has lost his mother whom he has loved and appreciated for so many years. Bawumiah was seen in a very sad state after the loss of his mother but what some Ghanaians are currently contemplating on and reacting to his why he didn’t make a public display of sadness and sorrows during the burial. Must Bawumiah show pain for his loss through tears specifically? Must he show the entire country that he is in pain and do so by crying bitterly?
According to many Ghanaians who have reacted to this, the Vice President is like any normal person and the fact that he didn’t shed the expected tears does not mean he’s not grieving. For a person who has not only known his mom but spent his whole life with, there’s an obvious fact that he will be heart broken and devastated about his loss. This is not a reason to make these assumptions and overlook the fact that what he needs at the moment is for all supporters or Ghanaians to grieve with him.
There were several funny and disturbing comments about these speculations which are ongoing on social media. But from observations, pain is not entirely seen in a person’s tears. Aside the fact that he could probably keep his tears to himself indoors, research has also shown that many men grief through a tear-free emotion state. And these are the type of men who even grief the most. Grieving is not in the tears shed but the pain one can feel in his or her heart.
Persons making these barbaric statements have been advised to put an end to it. If we call ourselves Ghanaians and claim we are from one origin, then we are expected to lift each other up and remain positive about what ever goes on in the lives of our fellow Ghanaians. Our condolences still goes to the Vice President and his family as they battle their way through this painful loss.
