FOOTBALLER LOSES ARM IN MACHETE ATTACK | A football player has lost his arm in a machete attack in Mutare.
Kudzai Mwaramba, a Buffaloes United player was trying to stop a fight between two men when he was struck with a machete.Hardwork Mushati (27), has since been arrested for the attack.
Mwaramba, said he was trying to restrain Mushati and Sandisai, who were fighting over a car that was parked at the car wash when he was attacked with a machete.
“The incident happened around 5pm on Monday at Masara Service Station near Sakubva Stadium. Hardwork Mushati was arguing with my brother over a vehicle that was parked at a place at which motorists are not allowed to park vehicles. That is when Mushati attacked me with a machete and cut my left arm.
I never thought it would end like that. In fact, I am lucky to be alive because I lost a lot of blood. I was weak,” he told the Manica Post.
Mwaramba said he was not sure if he would continue playing football after the gruesome attack.
“Anyway, I am happy I survived the attack. They (nurses) have been very helpful and they are saying I can have an artificial hand, but it is a bit expensive.
I am not sure whether I will continue with my football career after this.
