Widow of one of the Pemba UCZ bus accident victims is seeking financial support for her sick child’s medication.
Mesile Siankumba’s husband, a conductor of the same bus, was among the 17 that died in a head on collision last week.
She has told Diamond news that her three year old child is suffering from hydrocephalus, condition that that started a few months after she was born in 2019.
Siankumba says with her husband dead, it will be difficult to start take care of the expenses towards her child’s welfare.
Hydrocephalus is a build-up of fluid in the cavities deep within the brain.
The extra fluid puts pressure on the brain and can cause brain damage.
It is characterised by head enlargement in infants.
