A prosecutor who was fired after going on strike is now going blind. Patrobs Dube who is now studying law at university is appealing for help.

“l worked as a public prosecutor. In 2012, l was dismissed from my job, following a country wide prosecutors' strike. I then began to study for an LLB Degree. Thank God, l graduate this year! All along, l have been looking forward to joining the ranks of the learned profession, practising law: serving my country, again, uplifting my family, contributing to the development of mycity and lend a hand to the building of a Post-Covid World.

“I've been diagnosed with Tractional retinal detachment (secondary to Diabetes) on both eyes! l need surgery as a matter of urgency, or else l will lose my eyesight.

The op has to be done in the next 3- 4 months. My doctor says the procedure will cost USD 5 000.00 ( US Five Thousand Dollars). If done in South Africa, it will cost around R60 000.00 (Sixty Thousand Rand). Hence, my plea to you to help me raise the amount l will need for the Bills.
