A Bulawayo woman who was attacked and mauled by five vicious dogs in March has  returned home  from India in a much more improved condition.

25-year-old Cherish Muchegwa who went through an unfortunate incident after  being attacked by her landlord’s dogs returned from Kiran hospital in India last Saturday.

Muchengwa who left the country in a wheel chair can now stand on her own without any support.

She received a hero’s welcome from family and friends at Joshua Mqabuko international airport.

Among those who welcomed her back was the Deputy Minister Of Industry And Commerce Cde Raj Modi who expressed joy at her condition.

“I am really happy she has come back walking, when we took her to her flights we had to take her in an ambulance but now she came back as a normal passenger. She is walking and it is wonderful. I would like to thank those who have helped both directly and indirectly a lot of people helped even in India,” said Cde Modi.

“We thank the almighty for the intervention of the minister who made everything go according to plan. Above all we thank God for everything that has been done as we welcome her home,” said Abundant Life Revival Mission Church  member, Pastor Chawira.

The family was escorted home by a convoy of 20 vehicles in a celebratory atmosphere.

Specialists from Kiran hospital guaranteed Muchengwa a quick recovery, adding that she will be back to her normal life soon.
