Nehawu members down tools at Chris Hani hospital
The workers claim the EFF is stealing jobs at the facility.
JOHANNESBURG - Dozens of National Education Health and Allied Workers Union (Nehawu) members have gathered at the Chris Hani Baragwaneth Hospital to march against what they call the "capture" of the hospital by the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF).
The workers claim the party is stealing jobs at the facility.

Nurses and cleaning staff gathered outside, dancing, and they claim members of management at the hospital are corrupt and are bowing to the EFF's demands to hire party supporters.
Protesters allege 146 workers were employed without following proper procedures after the EFF marched to the premises and demanded that its members be given posts.
The marchers want the Gauteng health department to dismiss hospital CEO Sandile Mfenyana and other senior managers in the HR department.
