God save us from religion

Grace Mahata (not real name) is a Jehovah’s Witness nurse and on this particular day she had problems deciding whether administering a blood transfusion to Dyson would not put her in bad terms with her church and her God.

Mahata who until this day had been in the nursing profession for three years took a long time debating with her conscious whether doing it would disrepute her religious standing, at the expense of the four year old child’s life.

According to Dyson’s mother, Sellina M’mangisa, it took over 3 hours before her son received the blood, until the time that the nurse found a workmate to conduct the transfusion on her behalf as she had finally settled that it was against God’s will.
