Nehawu members at Chris Hani hospital call for CEO's resignation
Protesters claim the hospital’s CEO & HR officials employed 147 workers without following proper procedure.
JOHANNESBURG - National Education, Health and Allied Workers' Union (Nehawu) members working at the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital have called for the CEO to tender his resignation within seven working days, claiming he and other management officials at the hospital are corrupt.
Dozens of the union's members gathered at the hospital in Soweto, against what they call the 'capture' of the facility by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).
Nehawu claims the party is 'stealing' jobs at the hospital.
Protesters claim the hospital's CEO Sandile Mfenyana and HR officials employed 147 workers affiliated to the EFF without following proper procedure.
They handed over a memorandum of demands to management this afternoon.
As Mfenyana and other officials stood outside the hospital's main entrance, Nehawu's Amos Monyela addressed the crowd.
"People like Mfenyana, who are pensioners, must go and leave Bara before they destroy it."
The memorandum was then signed with the hospital's acting HOD Doctor Richard Lebethe receiving it and promising to report back to members as soon as possible.
