Acting Prosecutor General Mr Kumbirai Hodzi turned half blind after opening a letter from an anonymous person.
Hodzi said his eyes and nose started itching when he touched the letter which was on his desk. After visiting a specialist, one of his eyes was confirmed to have lost sight by 90 percent. Hodzi revealed this during last week’s interviews for the Prosecutor General post. He said he hadd eye surgery to restore his eyesight. Said Hodzi:
The document was delivered to my office. Security checks were circumvented and we do not know how it got to my table. When I opened the letter to read it, I also touched my eye. It became itchy. My nose also started itching and I bled from the nose. My eye lost sight by almost 90 percent. The condition of my eye kept on deteriorating until I had eye surgery.
Hodzi said he reported the matter to relevant authorities who are yet to establish the perpetrator.
