News Description

MED BRIEF AFRICA Nursing union, DENOSA has called on President Cyril Ramaphosa to ditch Health Minister, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi after the May elections, according to a report in The Star this morning. Speaking at the national DENOSA conference in Durban, the union’s president, Simon Hlungwani said the health system had collapsed under Motsoaledi’s watch and that the Minister had failed to prepare the country for the implementation of the National Health Insurance (NHI). According to Hlungwani, the Minister has reached the pinnacle of his career, and there is nothing more he can offer the Department of Health. Hlungwani also accused KZN health MEC Dr Sibongiseni Dhlomo of not sharing information with health employees and the public about the extent of oncology problems in the province. He said Denosa is calling for an investigation on how many people died during that saga of not having cancer treatment, because some doctors are saying there were 460 deaths. Motsoaledi’s spokesperson, Popo Maja, said allegations that the Minister had collapsed the health system were “outrageous”. He said there is nothing to support that, adding that the Minister “has been the champion of the NHI”.
