Ntabazinduna Chief Felix Nhlanhlayamangwe Ndiweni has extended a hand of invitation to Deputy Minister of Industry  Rajesh Kumar Indukant Modi for a meal of Inhloko at the sacred Ntabazinduna mountain in recognition of his work in assisting Cherish Muchegwa who was mauled by five dogs in Bulawayo.

Modi had posted on Twitter that, "Cherish Muchegwa is in the final stages of recovery. She will be back home before mid July. She went to India on a wheelchair, she will come back on her feet."

The controversial Chief Ndiweni responded, "Great work Mdawini!May the spirit you have shown in assisting Cherish manifest within the community and those around you(government). You must come eNtabazinduna for inhloko soon!"

Modi and Ndiweni then agreed that they will arrange the event outside Twitter.

Modi was very instrumental in fundraising for Muchegwa to get state of the art treatment in India.

The day before Muchegwa left for India Modi gave the following narration.

"The incident happened when I was in Australia on holiday with my family, I saw the pictures in the few WhatsApp groups I am in. The extent of the injuries pushed me to step forward and help. I started a social media campaign for her and I have not stopped ever since. When I came home I visited her in hospital and it was amazing to see her smile despite everything she was going through.

"After talking to her, I told myself I was going to do everything in my power to help her get the relevant treatment needed to heal her. I also made a silent promise that I was going to visit her in hospital again. The next time we will meet is when she is whole again, not a minute or second before she undergoes reconstructive surgery."
