Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Entertainment - Bon­gani Ndlovu Show­biz Cor­re­spon­dent

SUN­GURA Masters dance group mem­ber Du­misani Ndlovu was left for dead last week af­ter be­ing robbed and beaten up by thieves in Bu­l­awayo.

The dancer was on his way home from Mathon­isa Beer gar­den when the thieves pounced at about 11PM last Thurs­day.

Chron­i­cling his or­deal, Ndlovu af­fec­tion­ately known as Du­mara, said all he re­mem­bered was wak­ing up in hos­pi­tal af­ter be­ing hit by a brick.

“I was walk­ing home (Old Mag­wegwe) at about 11PM from Mathon­isa Bar af­ter a usual night out with friends. Af­ter cross­ing the traf­fic lights at Emancwabeni, I was hit by a brick on the head.

“I can’t re­mem­ber what hap­pened af­ter­wards. I only woke up in hos­pi­tal swollen the next day. My two phones and wal­let which had $28 had been stolen and I was in so much pain,” said Ndlovu who is still ad­mit­ted to Mpilo hos­pi­tal.

Ndlovu said it was for­tu­nate that the in­ci­dent hap­pened close to his home as his brother im­me­di­ately came to his res­cue. “I think peo­ple heard me scream for help so my brother rushed to as­sist me and or­gan­ised that I be taken to hos­pi­tal.”

Fel­low group mem­ber Ma­sot­sha Ndlovu said he hoped the po­lice would bring the cul­prits to book.

“Du­mara is an in­te­gral part of the group and he was beaten up badly. I was told at 3AM on Fri­day and went to visit him in hos­pi­tal. At least he’s re­cov­er­ing well,” said Ma­sot­sha. “I hope the po­lice find the peo­ple who com­mit­ted the crime and bring them to book.”
