An elderly Mabvuku woman Joice Dube (74) of 918 Mangwende drive, Old Mabvuku is said to be going without food and other basic needs on end if neighbours don’t come to her rescue. Joice Dube lives alone in darkness and has no one to fetch water for her or do her laundry such that she relies on good samaritans around the neighbourhood to assist her with her household chores.

“This is despite that her children and grandchildren are sitting pretty and working in UK, South Africa, Ukraine and Canada but no one seems to care so they don’t send money or even provide a maid to assist her” ,said Misheck, a boyfriend of a neighbour who visited the neighbourhood and heard about her desperate plea for help.

“When neighbours phone the children they change numbers”, said Misheck.

Joice Dube’s children are Patricia Muchimika (54), George Muchimika and Tendai Muchimika.

“One George her grandson is in UK .The other grandson Vincent Goromingo is said to be a pastor in South Africa. The other grandchildren abroad include Loriet, Pauline, Kudzi, Cynthia, Sibongile, Denzel and Jack Changaresango who is said to be in Canada”. Added Misheck.

Neighbours suspect that the old woman is now mentally disturbed due to acute stress as she has started breaking house windows.
