A Zimbabwean nurse Sithabile Sibanda died in the United Kingdom (UK) just three weeks after emigrating there.
Sithabile died in the early hours of Sunday. Sithabile’s friend Lydia Maa released a detailed statement saying she had suffered from abdominal pain.
“Good morning, everyone. I am very overwhelmed & unable to respond to every message. I am in communication with Star’s brother & mother in Zimbabwe. I will keep you updated on the funeral progress.”
She said Star tried to call her on Sunday 24th July at 01:42hrs. Sunday morning, around 1130, the police confirmed that she died around 4 am that day.
Sthabile reportedly rang for an ambulance as she was experiencing abdominal pain; however, by the time they arrived passed on.
She described her friend as a fit and healthy person adding that her welfare was catered for as she ensured she was comfortable and had all She needed.
“Next step, the coroners will be in contact to advise on the following stages. For now, let’s pray so that the journey can be easy,” Maa wrote.
