The Zimbabwean who had his face chewed away by a hyena now has a prosthetic nose.
9-year-old Rodwell Khomazana had been attending an all night church service with his grandmother when a hyena lurched and started eating him alive.
He had apparently fallen asleep at the back of the church with his friends when the hyena pounced.
He was saved from near death by his grandmother who took a stick and started hitting the animal as it disappeared into the forest.
The boy has now received his prosthetic nose at the Capital Prosthodontics and Henk Cronje of Dura Art Dental Laboratory in Pretoria.
The Smile Foundation and outstanding medical practitioners, who included Dr Avish Jay Jagathpal and his team, sponsored Khomazana with a prosthetic nose and made sure he received pro bono services throughout his implanting surgery.
A lot of praises have been healed on the doctors as the boy now has a second chance at life.
