BESIDES thrillers, this was apparently the best medical drama or hospital show to watch that was going to get your heart pumping.

Ugly scenes that left nurses, patients and other hospital staff sh0cked recently punctuated Mpilo Central Hospital in Bulawayo when one of the medical doctors at the health institution was confronted by his former workmate who is also a medical doctor accusing him of having an ɑffair with his girlfriǝnd.

The dramatic scenes reportedly started at the health institution’s doctors’ quarters and later spilled over to the theatre where one of the doctors accused of being a “woman snatcher” was performing an operation.

Tendai Chadambuka (37) formerly employed at Mpilo Central Hospital first confronted his former workmate Selby Muchini (29) at his place at the doctors’ quarters and without knocking, he got into his room and started shouting while accusing him of having an ɑffair with his girlfriǝnd.

According to a source a furious Chadambuka then threatened to assault Muchini before he demanded to browse through his phone and he handed it to him.

The seemingly suspicious Chadambuka browsed through and after that he threatened to kill Muchini, the source said.

The following day and at around 8am, Chadambuka went to Mpilo Hospital to look for Muchini and he found him at the theatre where he was performing an operation on a patient.

“He called him out of the theatre but Muchini refused since he was still busy and concentrating on the patient. In a fit of rage, Chadambuka stormed into the theatre room and repeatedly shoved him while trying to seize his cellphone but he kept a firm grip on it.

“He vainly tried to take the cellphone and in the process Muchini was left injured on the mouth. Chadambuka gave up and went away,” said the source.

Muchini reported the incident to the police. After making a report he returned to the hospital and sat in his car which was parked within the hospital premises.

“While he was sitting in his car, Chadambuka again confronted him and threatened to assault and abduct him. Muchini then reached for a pepper spray which was in his car and sprayed him on the face.

“After that he went back to the police station and reported the incident,” said the source.

When reached for comment Muchini confirmed the incident saying:

“He (Chadambuka) has been harassing me for quite a long time. He has been accusing me of being in l0ve with his girlfriǝnd and I have told him on countless occasions that I’m not in l0ve with her.

“I only met his girlfriǝnd when he was with her at a party in Mzilikazi suburb last year and I have told him that I’m not in l0ve with her but he does not understand.”

He added: “He confronted me at the hospital while I was in the theatre and he had to wear operating theatre attire to cross the demarcation line to where I was performing an operation on a patient.

“He tried to take my phone but I refused and he left when nurses, patients and other hospital officials had gathered to witness the incident.”

When called to hear his side of the story Chadambuka initially said: “Don’t you think it’s a lie?”, before he hung up

When called for the second time he said: “Who are you? And what were you calling in connection with. My brother, that matter is political, that’s all I can say.”
