Chitungwiza woman Rosemary Charlie, who was allegedly axed by her husband and spent four weeks in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Chitungwiza General Hospital, is recovering well and has been discharged from hospital.
Charlie’s condition had deteriorated a few days after her admission into hospital when she developed kidney complications which saw her being moved from the general ward to the ICU.
Obadiah Moyo, the chief executive officer of the hospital, confirmed to NewsDay yesterday that Charlie had been discharged.
“Charlie is recovering very well after staying here for a long time and I really thank the hospital staff for a job well done,” said Moyo.
He said Charlie was moved from the ICU to the ordinary ward before she was discharged.
“Charlie has been discharged and we hope she is going to stay freely without any intimidation and such things must not happen again,” added Moyo.
However, when NewsDay visited her home last night, Charlie’s daughter refused the crew entry into the family home.
Charlie suffered multiple axe wounds following the vicious attack, allegedly by her husband after a heated domestic dispute.
She also suffered a fractured left arm, reportedly broken in three from the axe blows and when NewsDay visited her at her hospital bed, all her limbs were in bandages.
The husband, Gorden Tsuro, a senior provincial marriage registrar, is out on $500 bail.
