Bulawayo South Member of Parliament Raj Modi said the Indian Embassy to Zimbabwe has waivered visa fees requirement for a woman who was mauled by dogs in Bulawayo in March.

Said Modi, "We keep winning: the Indian Embassy has exempted Cherish Muchegwa, her husband Joseph Masaiti and the nurse from paying Visa fees. A Visa to India costs US$120."

Modi added that they had finally found a medical person who will accompany Muchegwa to India

"I'm happy to announce that we have found a medical practitioner to fly to India with Cherish Muchegwa. I'm not yet at liberty to reveal the person's identity but I'm bowled over by the level of benevolence shown. This individual is heaven sent. We indeed one people."

On Sunday Modi led a team of volunteers and set up a mobile car wash at Abundant Life Ministries to raise more funds for Muchegwa.

"This is what we made on Sunday from Cherish Muchegwa's fundraiser carwash - Bank Transfer $300, Bond $308, Rands 2345, USD $395 and Ecocash $1899. We were at Abundant Life Ministries and I must say the response was overwhelming.

"Saturday we raised US$63; P220; R250; $286 Bond and $246 Ecocash."

Anyone who wishes to contribute to the US$10 000 needed by Muchegwa for operation can Ecocash Joseph Masaiti on 0773960966.
