A former employee at Tongaat Hullet has threatened to sue Hippo Valley Medical Centre after medical doctors who did an operation on him left a surgical blade in his abdomen in 2019.

David Mlilo lived with the blade for three years up until a doctor from Parirenyatwa discovered the blade lodged in his abdomen.

David Mlilo who was employed as a village supervisor lost his job early this year due to health complications caused by a surgical blade allegedly left in his abdomen by surgeons.

Mlilo revealed that he is planning to sue the hospital for compensation since the doctor’s malpractice cost him his job.

Mlilo revealed that on the 18th of  December he was operated on to correct a hernia problem. He said after the operation, he started experiencing worse pain and his health situation got worse ever since then.

Meanwhile, Mlilo claims that he saw the blade that was removed from his abdomen but said that he is not aware of how Dr. Dandadzi disposed of it.
