TUMMY BOY CONDITION WORSENS

SANFROSSA MANYINDA writes                             

THE CONDITION of Maradona Mundyoli, a two-year-old boy whose belly has been bulging for a year now, has worsened.

Maradona’s grandfather Most Hachaamba told the Sun in a phone interview that the boy’s tummy has continued to grow despite him being on traditional medication for a month and some weeks now.

Mr Hachaamba said the boy had even stopped walking because of the size of the belly, which was growing bigger each day.

He said his grandchild spent most of the time seated as he could not manage to get up and play properly with his friends.

Mr Hachaamba said a traditional healer who was offering medical help to him asked the family members if he could be given one more week before they took him back to the clinic so that he could try the traditional medicine that he had recently discovered.

“He told us that he had discovered a different type of traditional medicine which he said might work on our grandson. So we have granted him the one more week that he asked for to work on him. Otherwise, plans of taking him back to the hospital are underway,” he said.

Mr Hachaamba said that the boy would only be taken back to the hospital should the traditional healer fail in the one week that he was given.

He, however, expressed worry that the boy did not show any signs of pain or suffering despite the condition worsening.

Maradona’s family rejected help from a hospital in April, 2019 and opted to place him under traditional treatment.

The boy was admitted to the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) in December, 2018 and was partially discharged on April 19, 2019 and was scheduled for review on the 15th of the same month, which the family ignored.

The family said the boy would not be taken back to the hospital stressing that he had been hospitalised for four months but medical personnel could not establish what the problem was.

The family decided to place the boy under traditional treatment for two weeks starting from April 15, 2019
