“Traumatized” Dr Magombeyi To Undergo Psychological & Neurological Tests In South Africa

The acting president of the Zimbabwe Hospital Doctors Association (ZHDA), Peter Magombeyi is expected to undergo psychological and neurological tests in South Africa.

Magombeyi was reportedly airlifted to South Africa in the late hours of Thursday (yesterday) having left the Avenues Clinic.

Magombeyi’s health condition remains unknown following his abduction by alleged state agents on the 14th of this month.

He was found “disoriented” on the 19th in Nyabira, about 35 kilometres outside Harare where his alleged abductors dumped him.

Magombeyi told reporters upon his return that he remembers being electrocuted by his kidnappers.

Dr Fortune Nyamande, the spokesperson of the ZADHR, told VOA Studio7 that a team of specialist doctors is set to examine Dr Magombeyi. Nyamande said:

The doctor during his ordeal is suspected to have been tortured and is deeply traumatized. So, his doctors have identified that he needs a psychological evaluation and he also needs to be seen by specialist doctors, neurologists and other related specialists who would be able to make sure that his mental state is worked on so that he will be able to return to full health as soon as possible.

The State had earlier blocked his travel to South Africa saying that he was unfit to travel and also that they wanted to ensure his safety.
