By Simba Chikanza| THE FATHER of a teenager killed following a Harare accident last week Tuesday speaks exclusively to ZimEye giving his side of the story after the state media only interviewed the mother.
In this interview, Mr Temba Moyo alleges that the fake doctor arrested at Parirenyatwa Hospital last week had demanded a bribe of USD1,300 for treating his son.
He says it was this bribery demand that led to the fake medic being arrested.
Speaking early morning, Mr Temba Moyo alleged saying his child’s mother did not tell the truth on how the son died last Tuesday.
The state owned HMetro quoted only the mother as she said she is suspicious that Mr. Admire Chisi was arrested following her child’s death.
HMetro quoted her saying Mr Chisi attended to her son before his subsequent arrest on Tuesday.
“I was told that the fake doctor attended to him in the company of baba mukuru.
“My child died on Monday after he was brought to Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals.
“Everything is suspicious from the way my child died.
“The explanations are not convincing me.
“He was then attended to by another doctor who tried to save him on the oxygen.
“He told the doctor what had happened before he died and it is not about an accident.
“I am in pain,” said Rumbidzai.
The child was buried on Sunday in Chiundura.
She said Chisi attended to her son before his subsequent arrest on Tuesday.
In an exclusive interview with ZimEye.com Mr Tembo gave his own account saying as the son’s death came after Chisi had posed as a doctor for him [the son] and then demanded money.
He began by saying the son “had an accident involving a kombi full of 13 people at Churchill and Borrowdale road … my in-laws wanted money, we went and got the burial order but the mother went and got the wrong information published,” he said.
He continued saying, “After we had settled the inlaws began demanding money. So the story that came out in H Metro is untrue.
When we got married, there emerged conflicts in how the process was done. This is still an outstanding matter;
They were shifting matters all over the place referring me to different people who should handle the marriage. So when the accident happened, they began blaming my brother trying to extort him,” he said.
He added saying the inlaws are accusing his brother of assault leading to his death in an accident while with an unnamed woman inside the car.
He then went on to narrate his account of how his son died.
“I can connect you with the police officers nd you phone them; in the honda fit was my brother with my son, in the Caravan kombi were the 13 people who collided with the honda fit…
“My son was first attended to by the fake doctor. What got him arrested was my mupfanha’s case,” he told ZimEye.
He said of the fake doctor, ” and also he was demanding USD1,300.00 I have messages [from him] He had demanded USD1000 from my brother, from me he was demanding USD300.00 when he clearly knew my son had died. I don’t know he got my number, whether he got it from my son, or my brother, I just can’t tell.”
Mr Tembo also told ZimEye his son’s injuries were not that bad at the time of the accident, alleging that he was likely killed by the fake doctor during his pursuit for money.
