A Zimbabwe student is going Blind after he was beaten up in Cyprus


MacMmillan Tafadzwa Nyamukondiwa (27) left Zimbabwe for Cyprus in 2016 and he was currently studying towards an M.Sc. in Information Systems at Near East University in Northern Cyprus.

While in Northern Cyprus Macmillan and his friends were attacked by Turkish assailants fortunately his friends of Turkish origin were left unharmed and he was unlucky. This happened in Cyprus on the eve of 16th of June 2017 .

A Zimbabwe student is fighting against blindness after he was beaten up in Cyprus. A campaign has now been launched to raise over $10 000 for a corneal transplant.



As a result of the trauma his stitches from the previous corneal transplant came off and this threatened vision in his good right eye. Doctors in Cyprus stitched up his eye in a medical surgery and put him on antibiotics but unfortunately this was in vain.

The diagnosing doctors have recommended a corneal transplant in highly specialized eye centre as it is not a straightforward case. At present, Macmillan only has 5% of his vision. As a family we are in the deepest of despair following these events.

Macmillan has had challenges with his eyes since he was young. In the year 2000, he had several major optical operations conducted in Zimbabwe by Dr. Solomon Guramatunhu to his cornea. In the end he needed corneal
transplants to both eyes resulting in good vision in the right eye but not much improvement in the left. Despite this ordeal, he has successfully completed his B.Sc. in Information Systems.
