ZANU PF Bulawayo South Member of Parliament Raj Modi is engaged in spirited efforts to raise funds for one Cherish Muchegwa who was mauled by dogs in March.  

Cherish needs USD$10 000 to undergo surgery in india.

The past weekend Modi held a mobile car wash which made stops at Bonsa Spar, Bradfield, Ascot, OK Mart and Liquor Hub.

Giving an update on Wednesday Modi said, "Two days of Ms Cherish Muchegwa's fundraiser carwash managed to see us posting impressive amounts of donations. On Saturday we made US$414, $1725 Ecocash, $682 Bond and R154. On Monday we raised US$54, €5, R240, $305 Bond and $614 Ecocash."

Modi encouraged all Zimbabweans to assist in the fundraising process to get Muchegwa to India.

"If we add other private donations we received this means we are on to way to meeting the US$10 000 needed for Cherish Muchegwa to undergo reconstructive surgery in India. This Saturday we go again with another carwash fundraiser. I will be back with more details." He added.

Speaking to State media last month Muchegwa who was mauled by her landlady's five dogs yesterday relived the horrific attack saying she could hear the sound of her flesh being torn off by the vicious canines.

"When they reached me one of them went for my arm and pulled me down and the others pounced on me and they started ravaging me. I think they were hungry because they clearly wanted to kill me. They tore off my clothes and I was completely not dresssed as they bit me.

"I could feel and hear my flesh being torn off and teeth crunching my bones as they ravaged me. I tried to fight them off with all my strength but I was no match for them. I somehow had the instinct to use my hands to protect my neck because they wanted to go for my throat to end my resistance. The pain I felt as they ate me alive is indescribable.  I am alive by the grace of God, "said Muchegwa said.
