ZAMBIA'S motorcycle sport ace, David Reeve, has been discharged from Sandton Medi Clinic in Johannesburg, South Africa where he was airlifted after breaking his left leg at the just-ended 2013 Dakar Rally on January 16.
Reeve said in an interview from Johannesburg yesterday that he has a scheduled appointment with a Sandton Medi Clinic doctor tomorrow and if the review goes well then he would leave South Africa for Zambia on Saturday.
"I am out (of clinic). I am staying with a cousin. I should get a go ahead to fly to Zambia on Saturday," said Reeve, who was riding a KTM.
The Mazabuka-based rider broke the news of his discharge on his Facebook page yesterday morning when he posted that: "Hi all. Doc has given me the ok to leave hospital....Where's my bike please..."
Reeve was on Monday visited by a member from South Africa's Motor Racing News, a publication that has pledged space in its eMag to carry a spread on the rider's Dakar Rally debut and Norwegian rider Pal Anders Ullevalseter's upcoming visit to Zambia.
Reeve retired his KTM from the Dakar on stage 11 in between WP4 and WP5 in Argentina when he went over handlebars of his motorcycle then into the river, in the process breaking his left leg at the time when he was placed 29th in the bike category.
