Blind Prostitute Rescued - Offered Free Treatment at Parirenyatwa

The 17-year-old partially blind lady, who made headlines for engaging into prostitution to raise money for eye surgery, was yesterday attended to at Parirenyatwa Group of Hospitals. 

Kelly Rice’s story touched Parirenyatwa group of hospitals chief executive officer Thomas Zigora who called the lady for a medical review.

She was accompanied by her lover Elton Kachepa, 20, who was receiving money from men who hooked her for se_xual services in the avenues area. “I was touched by an article published that a woman is going to an extent of engaging into prostitution in a way to raise money for eye surgery,” said Zigora. “After reviewing her medical records our specialists will establish if the surgery can be done here and I am still to receive that report since they came today (yesterday).

If the surgery can be done here it will be done. I engaged our public relations department to get hold of the lady and she is now being attended to. If it is established that the surgery can be done here it will be our social responsibility to meet the medical costs,” said Zigora.

A number of well-wishers called H-Metro following the publication of her story only to remain silent afterwards. Kelly told H-Metro that she underwent a nasty experience when she exposed herself in the avenues in prostitution.

“I never enjoyed the ‘old profession’ only that life differs but street life exposing my body to abuse and harsh weather was a nasty experience and I wish if I can get a job to make my living,” said Kelly.

“Parirenyatwa authorities welcomed me and my husband well that I am looking forward to recover my sight. They gave me a prescription and I hope I will get the money to buy it handingazoishayawo ndakutoenda neku pharmacy izvezvi,” said Kelly while Elton followed proceedings.
