UPDATE: Hwange Girl Who Was Burnt By Underground Fire Dies

UPDATE: Hwange Girl Who Was Burnt By Underground Fire Dies

Alisha Sekina Muzvite, an eight-year-old Hwange girl who has been battling for life at Mpilo Central Hospital in Bulawayo after being burnt by underground fires has died.

She died only days after doctors had amputated her both legs to minimize the effects of the injuries.

She suffered third-degree fire burns when she was literally swallowed waist-deep by a fire hole at an old dump site in Makwika village, Hwange about three weeks ago.

Alisha had gone to relieve herself and was in the company of her aunty when the incident occurred around 4 pm.

Her mother Ms Ethel Ncube confirmed that Alisha passed on at Mpilo on Monday night. She said:

She died last night just before 10 pm. They cut both her legs last Wednesday as doctors said the injuries were third-degree as the fire had damaged her legs. On Friday she looked coping as she was talking. They gave her blood transfusion and her body started swelling and her condition continued to deteriorate. 

Meanwhile, Greater Whange Residents Trust condemn the increase of cases of burnt children at dumpsites saying it appears Hwange Colliery Company is not doing enough to address these issues.

The Trust said it will approach the company, EMA and government so that they address these issues.

Invigilation should be part of their work which must not be paid for (although they deserve a better salary). Vanoda kubhadharwa for invigilating ko vanofanira kunge vachiitei during exams? The main objective for teaching the children is to make them write and pass the public exams which are from ZIMSEC. Therefore, the teachers have to guide the children kupedzisa rwendo rwawo. Just invigilate sezvamaingoita kare be paid for (although they deserve a better salary). Vanoda kubhadharwa for invigilating ko vanofanira kunge vachiitei during exams?
