Gokwe Teacher Dies After Bee Attack

Gokwe Teacher Dies After Bee Attack

A 42-year-old teacher at Nyamhara Primary School in Gokwe North died on Wednesday last week after she was attacked by a swarm of bees.

Sitholakhe Moyo was attacked by the bees while coming from local shops where she had gone to buy groceries after knocking off from work.

Zimbabwe Republic Police (ZRP) spokesperson in Midlands Province Inspector Emmanuel Mahoko confirmed the incident. He said:

I can confirm that Mrs Sitholakhe Moyo was attacked by a swarm of bees while on her way home from the local shops.

The incident happened at around 5 PM on Wednesday.

She was later confirmed dead a few minutes after she was admitted to Nembudziya Hospital.

A villager, Tinashe Chinaka, told The Sunday News that Moyo had gone to buy a few groceries at a local business centre which is close to the school.

He said on her way back, suddenly a swarm of bees came from one of the trees which was near the path and attacked her. Said Chinaka:

We heard her crying and rushed to where she was but when we got there she had fallen down and the bees were all over her.

Chinaka said one of the villagers rushed with a blanket and covered the teacher but it was all in vain.

A community member availed his car and they ferried Moyo to Nembudziya Hospital but she was confirmed dead upon arrival at the hospital.

Officials from the Environmental Management Agency (EMA) attended the scene and sprayed the bees.

ZRP spokesperson will comment later and I predict he will warn citizens not to put on opposition colors as this will expose them to the marauding bees.

If you can find a water body nearby it would be helpful if you go bury yourself under the water and swim away
