The Deputy Minister of Industry and Commerce Raj  Modi has announced that he is looking for a nurse or doctor who can accompany a woman who had a flesh eaten by dogs in March. The woman is supposed to travel to India for a operation.

Posting on Twitter on Friday Modi said, "Needed urgently is a nurse or doctor with Advanced Cardiac/Trauma Life Support qualifications to fly to India with Cherish Muchegwa.

"We need someone who wants to save a life not someone after money. A volunteer will be most welcome if possible."

Modi has been at forefront of publicising the plight of Muchegwa whose flesh was ripped and eaten by dogs belonging to her Bulawayo South landlord in March.

The Bulawayo South MP called for funding from well wishers and organised car wash event to raise the USD$10 000 needed by Muchegwa for operation in India.

Narrating her ordeal in March Muchegwa said she could hear her skin being ripped from her bones as the dogs feasted on her.

She was saved by a neighbour who sustained injuries also in the process.

The dogs were since shot.
