The Lethole line has ended: Shonisani’s family speak out on his death
A family whose son died at the Tembisa Hospital in Ekhuruleni wants answers from the Health Department after he was allegedly denied food for two days. Shonisani Lethole died on Monday, a week after he was admitted to hospital with respiratory issues. Just days before his death, he sent a tweet to the Health Minister to complain about not being fed for 48 hours at a government facility. The facility says it has documents showing Lethole was fed and well taken care of. Lethole's family told Eyewitness News that they want answers from the Health Department.
