hirteen Mbalila prison inmates in Hwange who were hospitalised after being struck by lightning on Friday have been discharged and have since returned to the cells.
Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services (ZPC) national deputy spokesperson Superintendent Peter Chaparanganda said the thirteen, including the four who were critically injured, have been treated and discharged.

“They have all stabilized and are recovering fully from their prison cells,” Chaparanganda said.

“Some of them who were at St Patrick’s Hospital were discharged on Saturday and the others the following day.”

The inmates were having lunch in the prison courtyard when they were struck by lightning.

They were rushed to St Patricks Hospital and the four who had suffered severe burns were transferred to Mpilo Hospital in Bulawayo.

The Meteorological Services Department has warned of heavy rainfall this week along the country’s main watershed and the Eastern Highlands with lightning, strong winds and hailstorms expected in some areas. -Cite
