Acting Prosecutor-General Mr Kumbirai Hodzi has revealed that he is now half blind after one of his eyes was damaged when he opened an anonymous letter.

He did not know how the letter which addressed to him found its way to his desk. He said when he touched the letter his eyes and nose started itching. After visiting a specialist, one of his eyes was confirmed to have lost sight by 90 percent.
Mr Hodzi, who is in the running for the PG’s post, revealed this during last week’s public interviews. Responding to questions relating to the challenges he was facing, Mr Hodzi said the incident was an attack on his person.
“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.

“Investigations are still in progress to establish the truth of what really transpired.”
