DA calls for Gauteng hospital probe

The DA says there is a problem of equipment shortages in Gauteng state hospitals.

JOHANNESBURG – The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) should investigate equipment shortages in Gauteng hospitals, the Democratic Alliance (DA) said on Friday.

State hospitals have come under the spotlight in recent months for non-payment to suppliers, broken equipment and patients not receiving proper treatment.

DA shadow health minister Patricia Kopane visited the Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital in Johannesburg on Friday, only to find that equipment used to treat cancer patients were still not working.

Some machines have been offline since March.

With the Health MEC changing once again, Kopane said it is difficult to hold anyone accountable.

She wants the SAHRC to investigate the matter and for Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi to take action.
