Cephas Shava

17 Feb 2017 – MWENEZI – A critically ill 27-year-old Mwenezi man, who has been battling for his life at Neshuro District Hospital for months after he was injured in a freak accident while offloading cement from a truck, has pleaded with well-wishers to help her meet the treatment costs.
Phineas Chauke of Mukahamari village, Chief Neshuro, was discharged from hospital for home-based care last Monday, although he had indicated a few days earlier that he would prefer to stay in hospital as his condition was still dire.He said home-based care was not ideal as he could not afford the medication and to pay the person who will professionally administer the medicine.
Chauke sustained spinal injuries after the door of the truck’s side trailer hit him below the chest while doing a piece job offloading cement at Chingwanga hardware at Neshuro growth point some months ago.
While trying to open the truck load, Chauke was hit by the side door of the truck whose load was reportedly some more than 600 bags of cement.
He fell down and some bags of cement fell on top of him.
He was initially transferred from Neshuro hospital to Masvingo General Hospital from where he was again referred to United Bulawayo Hospitals (UBH) and later on to Parerenyatwa Hospital where he underwent surgery and discharged.
His condition has however deteriorated of late and he has developed deep sores on his backside and legs.local
