EFF pressurised St Rita’s hospital to deliver a suitable wheelchair to a needy.


St Rita’s hospital has finally handed over an appropriate wheelchair at midday on Monday of 10th September 2018 to a paralysed victim. It is alleged that the nurses used injection called lover punch to inject her which left her paralysed. Nthabiseng Mphelane was escorted by the regional leadership of Economic Freedom Fighter (EFF). Gatekeepers tried to deny fighters to enter infirmary premises however they failed.

Nthabiseng was spoken out earlier on 31 July when the EFF marched to the hospital to deliver a memorandum. She made several allegations linked to the hospital.

“The intervention of the EFF was crucial to me. The effort, energy and pressure of the EFF put the infirmary to handover a wheelchair to me. I fought this battle for too long. I really thank the organisation,” she said.

Regional chairperson of EFF, Moleke Senong said was necessary for the leadership to accompany Nthabiseng. He said earlier EFF march to the hospital favours them to do so. “The health MEC is not yet responded to our memorandum but Nthabiseng wheelchair was included. The Chief Executive Officer told us that he delivered a memorandum to MEC on time. This is demonstration of disrespect to the people at large,” said Senong.

He further said organisation fail to comprehend why public sector continue to undermine people. The scarcity of doctors, lack of medications ambulance with expired vehicle license disc and unkind attitude towards old people amongst hospital workers were amongst complaints which were contained in a memorandum.

“Health MEC must be hold accountable for the mess in the department. We are suggesting to meet her very soon,” Senong concluded.
