THE Bulawayo woman who was mauled by her landlady’s five dogs in March received a hero’s welcome yesterday at the Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo (JMN) International Airport in Bulawayo.

Ms Muchegwa, who doctors feared would never walk again after sustaining stomach-turning injuries from the rabid dogs, walked down the plane’s steps without being assisted by anyone. She went to India on a wheelchair and came back on her feet.

After spending three months at Kiran Hospital in India, Ms Cherish Muchegwa, who was accompanied by her husband, Mr Joseph Masaiti, was met at the airport by the Deputy Minister of Industry and Commerce Cde Raj Modi and a delegation of more than 50 people from Abundant Life Revival Mission Church.

When she reached the ground, she refused to use the wheelchair that the airport staff had offered and instead walked to meet fellow church members.

“It’s an honour to receive such a welcome. I am overwhelmed by the love the people of Zimbabwe have shown me. To be recognised and loved by everyone home is an honour. I am thankful for the people of Zimbabwe who made this possible. Special mention goes to Raj Modi, his relatives and friends, the Minister of State for Bulawayo Cde Judith Ncube, the church (Abundant Life Revival Mission Church), United Bulawayo Hospitals and all the people who donated their money and prayed for me.
