Morris Bishi - Chiredzi - A grade three boy at Nyahanga Primary School is appealing for help to access medical attention for one of his legs that has developed a rare disease.
It has grown big to the extent of affecting his movement.
Decide Mutirikidi (9) of village Masekesa under Chief Tshovani told The Mirror during a visit to the school last week that the leg is extremely painful. He said it was only his keen interest on education that keeps him coming to school.
Mutirikidi said he is an orphan and is staying with his father`s young brother.
The Deputy Head at Nyahanga Primary school Temba Sithole said for the past three years many people were visiting the school to see Decide but nothing materialized.
"When he was in grade one and two his handwriting was neat but this is worsening. It seems that the problem is spreading to the whole body," said Sithole.
"As a school we are appealing to well wishers so that Decide could go for an in-depth medical checkup to save his life, the problem is affecting him and it is worsening" said Sithole.HEALTH
