Zimbabwe successfully defended a modest total to pull off an upset 19-run win over in-form Pakistan and level their Twenty20 international series at the Harare Sports Club on Friday. Zimbabwe were sent into bat first, and despite a feisty 34 from Tinashe Kamunhukamwe, made only a paltry 118-9 as wickets tumbled at regular intervals.

The biggest and perhaps most irreconcilable split is between those who have taken to lay blame on the woman for exposing herself to such a vulnerability and those who are horrified at such victim-blaming. These two camps are fairly neatly divided along demographic lines, with many religious clerics expressing tacit support for – or silent approval of – the former camp, and civil society members being near unanimous in their support for the latter. Insofar as the government itself is concerned, the situation is murkier. While many politicians have jumped on the chance to condemn the incident and all forms…
