The 72-year-old father of the child then took his daughter to the doctor for treatment. The doctor was reported to have diagnosed her with a ruptured appendix and recommended the removal.

However, while treating the teenager, Dr Kwende reportedly removed her ovaries. He was also accused of destroying other important parts of her reproductive organs.

Lanna who was left with a bigger health crisis than she had two years ago started experiencing the absence of menstruation.

The girl who is now in Senior Secondary class 1, would frequently fall ill. Her father took her to four hospitals where it was confirmed that her ovaries had been removed. Also, she was diagnosed with shrinking fallopian tubes which suggests that she may never be able to conceive.

Lanna’s father who is a farmer said when they informed the doctor about the incident, he threw them out of his hospital.

This forced him to take the matter to the police who had him arrested for only one day. The aggrieved father said the doctor was granted bail by the police who are now supporting him.
