Tell Reporter in Zaka
ZAKA – St Peters private hospital owner Cephas Gwamure is now leaving in fear following death threats messages he received from unknown assailants recently.
The visibly shaken Gwamure told Tell Zimbabwe that soon after receiving the threats, his ambulance was attacked while on its way from Masvingo general hospital. The rear corner lamps were smashed and the body was dented but the driver managed to escape uninjured.
Gwamure said he has since made police report.
Gwamure has since reported the matter to the police
“I don’t know the reason why I am being persecuted here. I was already thinking of relocating to another district but some senior officials from police told me that they were going to investigate the issue so that the rogue elements are dealt with,” said Gwamure.
St Peters hospital was established last year and it has helped over 10 000 patients so far.
“I assist at least 600 patients per month and I have since become the only source of hope here. People come from all corners of the country. I mainly assist patients suffering from Cancer, high Blood Pressure (BP) and diabetes among other chronic diseases,” he added.Local
