I DID NOT KNOW DOC REMOVED MY UTERUS


A farmer was left shocked after a top Harare gynaecologist, Dr Ashel Marume, removed her uterus without her consent. She was at a local hospital to deliver a baby when disaster struck.

Nyasha Chiweshe only discovered about the removal four days later after she had asked Dr Marume the best contraceptive method to use. However, Dr Marume informed her that she no longer had a womb.

She has now sued the doctor for $400 000 which is for psychological and emotional trauma ($150 000), future medical expenses ($50 000), loss of income ($100 000) and loss of dignity ($100 000).

“The actions of the defendants (Dr Marume and the hospital) resulted in plaintiff (Chiweshere) getting psychological and emotional trauma. The plaintiff is still nursing wounds sustained and her left side most often gets numb and she will be unable to use her left hand,” reads part of her summons.
