Peter Ndlovu recovering well



Zimbabwe footballing great Peter Ndlovu had surgery at the Mater Dei hospital in Bulawayo after he regained consciousness from the car accident that cost his brother Adam his life on Sunday.

Ndlovu, who went under the knife for injuries to his legs and head, is also believed to have broken some ribs.

The family’s spokesman, elder brother Madinda Ndlovu, said that Peter is progressing well and that he can speak at the moment. He said that although they have told him about Adam’s death, they have been trying to avoid placing any further stress on him.

“We had to hire a psychologist to inform him about the death in the presence of the family members,” Madinda said.

“He was shocked but he received the news like a strong man. It was very hard to tell him but we had to because we were also arranging the funeral on the other hand so we wanted him to know that Adam will be buried on Saturday.”

“But since the operation he seems to be doing very well and it is good to see him progress.”

Adam, another former Zimbabwe international, will be buried at the Lady Stanley cemetery on Saturday.
