Targeted ambulance was stripped parts and found in Ga Masemola


Member of Executive Committee (MEC) for health in Limpopo, Phophi Ramathuba is calling on the community members with information to assist the police after an ambulance driver was hijacked at Stydskraal village on 26 February 2019.

Hijacked ambulance  was returning to Ga Nchabeleng Emergency Medical Services (EMS) after dropping a patient off at Jane Furse hospital. But later the ambulance which had been stripped for parts was recovered at Ga Masemola on Thursday morning.

MEC Ramathuba confirmed that the emergency workers were also found unharmed and she promised to offers them counselling.

She has questioned reasons behind targeting such valuable and sensitive resources mandated to help the community.

“Crime has become the number one risk to the delivery of quality healthcare in this country. It’s quite unfathomable how a same person can target such a valuable and sensitive community resource such as an ambulance,” said Ramathuba

“We target resources that needed the most. Department procures 50 ambulances annually to beef up its fleet, but the impact is minimal due to theft and hijacking,” she said.
