Kariba Man Fights Off Three Crocodiles

Kariba Man Fights Off Three Crocodiles

A man from Kariba, Mashonaland West Province, is admitted to a hospital in Zambia after he was seriously injured in a triple crocodile attack on the edge of Lake Kariba last Thursday.

Alexander Chimedza suffered a broken hand, injured thighs and broken fingers after he was attacked by three crocodiles on the shores of Lake Kariba.

Chimedza’s wife, Primrose Madufu (23) told H-Metro that her husband fought the reptiles with bare hands and killed one of them.

Madufu revealed that she heard of the incident after her husband had already been taken to the hospital. She said:

Chimedza was looking for worms to use in fishing around 8 am on the banks of the dam when the crocodiles attacked him.

He managed to put his hand in the mouth of one of the crocodiles and it died.

… Chimedza was taken to Zambia where he is having skin grafting.

He is responding well to the medication and procedure being taken by the medical staff where he is being treated.

However, the Zimbabwe National Parks and Wildlife Authority (Zimparks) had not yet commented about the incident.

People who live near the border areas always cross to neighboring countries for health-care. Hwange and Vic Falls tinoenda zvedu pa Livingstone Zambia. There's better healthcare and its cheaper futi.

THIS IS WHY I HAVE ALWAYS SAID WE HAVE A CRISIS IN ZIMBABWE. I COME FROM HURUNGWE DISTRICT WHICH SHARES BORDER WITH KARIBA DISTRICT. I VISIT KARIBA TOWN ON YEARLY BASIS.

KARIBA HAS A DISTRICT HOSPITAL. SOME COLLEAGUES WANT TO KNOW WHY THIS MAN WHO WAS ATTACKED BY CROCODILES WAS SENT TO ZAMMBIA.

PEOPLE IN KARIBA, HURUNGWE AND SURROUNDING AREAS HAVE LOST FAITH IN OUR HEALTH CARE SYSTEM. THEY PREFER TO GO TO ZAMBIA THAN TO GO TO KARIBA HOSPITAL.

IT IS THE SAME WITH COMMUNAL LANDS FOLKS IN KARIBA DISTRICT AND HURUNGWE DISTRICT. THEY BOARD BUSES, GET PASSES FROM IMMIGRATION DEPARTMENT AT THE BORDER AND CROSS TO ZAMBIA FOR PROPER MEDICATION.

RELATIVES GET INTO PROBLEMS IF THEIR RELATIVE PASSES ON IN ZAMBIA. THEY HAVE TO CONTRIBUTE TO RAISE MONEY TO FERRY THE BODY BACK TO ZIMBABWE.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THIS IS HAPPENING IN ZIMBABWE WHERE WE LIVE. OUR PEOPLE CROSS INTO ZAMBIA VIA CHURUNDU OR KARIBA TO VEND ON THE STREETS OF THE TOWNS IN ZAMBIA !!!!!

YOURS TRULY
CDE KUFA KWANGU ZVAROVA
