JOHANNESBURG – A 5-hour operation to start reconstructing nine-year-old Rodwell Nkomazana’s face was a success.
The young boy from Zimbabwe was mauled by a hyena while sleeping at a church gathering in Harare.
The animal bit off parts of the boy’s face.
Renowned plastic surgeon, Dr. Ridwan Mia who is leading the operation, pro-bono, says Rodwell is doing well after the surgery.
“Overall Rodwell is doing well, he is in ICU, we have sedated for today as he is recovering but the surgery went well,” he said.
