DIAPER ARGUMENT CAUSES WOMAN TO LOSE SPEECH
Awoman in her early 20s experienced her worst nightmare af t er an ar gument with her younger sister left her disabled and she lost her speech.
According to impeccable sources, Khombisile used a diaper that belonged to Vuyisile’s (victim) baby without asking her first and upon her return from work on that fateful Tuesday evening two weeks ago, the victim questioned her sister about her act.
This matter was confirmed by the two women’s distraught mother, who mentioned that on the fateful day they heard the two arguing and thought nothing to it but when voices were raised they went into the room to try and calm them down. “We could hear that they were arguing over diapers but then as we heard voices being raised we went into their room and as Vuyisile was talking she suddenly fell down head first, and even though her left hand was not moving she was beating her chest with the right hand so fast,” her mother said.
Her older sister supported her mother’s statement, adding that Vuyisile was not bleeding but even though her mouth was closed, her eyes were still open. “She was convulsing like someone who is throwing a fit, so we quickly called an ambulance that took her to hospital,” she said.
She added that they tried to resuscitate her by pouring her with cold water but in vain while still waiting for an ambulance. She remained admitted in hospital for two weeks, with doctors doing everything in their power to restore her speech. However, she still can’t use her left hand and can’t walk or stand on her own anymore. “She was discharged on Wednesday after doctors told us that there is nothing else they can do as all that they thought would bring her back to life failed, so we are back home,” they added. Mlambo is only expected to start speech therapy in Mbabane on October 9, even though doctors are said to have suspected that she suffered a stroke.
Vuyisile Mlambo lies helplessly on a sleeping mat upon her return from hospital where she spent two weeks after doctors said she suffered a stroke.
