The female traffic police officer constable, Marjory Moyo, who was knocked down by a minibus at a traffic checkpoint on Great East Road on Saturday is out of danger but still admitted to Levy Mwanawasa General Hospital where she may require further procedures to repair injuries she suffered.
Acting Hospital Medical Superintendent Clarence Chiluba has told Millennium Radio that Constable Moyo’s condition was stable after undergoing an operation on soft tissue injuries.
“She is very stable we have kept her in high cost. She had sustained some soft tissue injuries. These are injuries that have to do with the skin being cut and muscle being affected, which we sutured. Fortunately there were no bones that were affected.” he said
Dr. Chiluba has also disclosed that a plastic surgeon will evaluate Constable Moyo to check on her stitches and ensure that no permanent scars remained.
“The nature of some of her injuries will need to have a plastic surgeon to look at her and he is coming in tomorrow (Monday). She is a lady and we need to beautify her so a plastic surgeon will come in and help us chart the way forward. Because of the injuries to her face she may have scars and we don’t want that to happen. But she is stable and comfortable.” Dr. Chiluba said. Police have in the meanwhile arrested Steven Phiri the driver of the minibus and charged him with attempted murder and are looking for the owner of the minibus for allowing the unlicenced driver to operate the bus.
