Supersport United Star Kuda Mahachi & Wife Accused Of Horrific Child Abuse, 4-Year-Old Son’s Leg Amputated After Pouring Hot…read more


Zimbabwe Warriors star Kuda Mahachi and his wife Rose have been accused of horrific child abuse after the Supersport United midfielder’s 4-year-old son’s leg was amputated.

Mahachi is alleged to have scalded the minor with boiling water as punishment. These horrific injuries did not receive timely medical attention, resulting in the leg being amputated.

The minor is from Kuda Mahachi’s relationship with his ex-wife Maritha Ndlovu.

Maritha alleged that the abuse happened in South Africa after the SuperSport United midfielder requested to see his son.

She claimed that Mahachi flew the boy to South Africa. Initially, everything seemed okay until Kuda and his current wife Rose stopped responding to her texts.

In an emotional interview with Bulawayo based lifestyle tabloid B-Metro, Maritha said,

“There was no reason for them to block me. I knew something was wrong after I was blocked on WhatsApp and my calls were blacklisted.”

She went on to say that she got the shock of her life when she learned that her son had been returned to Zimbabwe without her knowledge. He had been at his paternal grandmother’s house in Cowdray Park, Bulawayo, for over a week.
Apparently, the 4-year-old was sent back home alone through a Malayitsha. Malayitsha are cross-border couriers/transporters who smuggle money and commodities across the border between South Africa and Zimbabwe.

“She said my son is sick and he is at her house in Cowdray Park. I asked her how is he in Cowdray Park because as far as I knew he was in South Africa and she said he had been in Zimbabwe since last Thursday. I lost it and asked how come I was not informed that he had been returned, after all I am his mother.

“I told the grandmother that I was going to come collect him the next day. But she insisted that I drop everything and come see my son. That made me realise that something was wrong with my son. I was panicking, so I called a relative and we went together to Cowdray Park. I found my son sleeping and heavily bandaged on the head and I thought it was not that bad. When I removed the blanket that was covering him, because I wanted to carry him in my arms, I was shocked to find him with burns all over the body.”

The grandmother told her that the minor had not received any medical attention despite the horrific nature of his wound. Instead, she had been treating him herself.

“The journey from Johannesburg to Bulawayo is about 10 hours and he was alone. What kind of father does that to his son? Mahachi has money and he can afford to have his son treated in South Africa. I took my son to a private surgery and they quickly called an ambulance that took him to Mpilo Hospital. The doctor said taking him to hospital using any other car was not appropriate, but his father put him in a Quantum bus. How cruel can one be?

Maritha went on to accuse the former Orlando Pirates midfielder of horrific physical abuse towards the minor.

“My son is four years old but he is not stupid and he has been talking. He says his father was abusing him. One of his front teeth is missing after his father hit him with some kind of iron bar and he has an injury on the forehead. His back is scourged from being whipped with a phone charger cable by his stepmother.

“But that is nothing compared to what his father did to him. He told me that his father beat him and then boiled water using a kettle and poured it on him.

“…We all punish our children when they do wrong, but to burn him with water is extremely evil… My son is now disabled because of his father. He will never walk again.”

Doctors battled to save the four-year-old’s feet. Unfortunately, they could only save the left foot. The right foot was damaged beyond repair and had to be amputated from the ankle.

Maritha added,

“He has been going for skin grafting, the doctors are doing all they can to help him. He was rotting away and had they not told me, he could have died in Cowdray Park. Mahachi’s sisters are paying his medical bills and I have heard that he is now not in good books with them because they are also hurt by what happened.”

The case has now been referred to Interpol, as the horrific abuse is alleged to have happened in South Africa.

When reached for comment, Mahachi furiously denied the allegations. He insisted that his son was fine when he left South Africa and must have been burnt in Zimbabwe.

“I am the father of the child and I am not aware that he is burnt. As far as I know I sent him to Zimbabwe in one piece. Don’t listen to lies. There is nothing like that. My son is okay. My son was not burnt. If he was burnt then he was burnt in Zimbabwe, not here in South Africa. Go ahead and write your lies, already I see your stories on social media,” said Mahachi.

Rose also denied the allegations, claiming that people hated them.

Two other people later called B-Metro, defending Mahachi and accusing Maritha of being a bitter ex out to fix him.
