KZN govt to take action against corruption: Zikalala

KZN govt to take action against corruption: Zikalala Janine Sat, 08/08/2020 - 06:00 Teaser Media Paragraphs KZN Premier Sihle Zikalala says not everyone is corrupt in his government. @ShahanR asked him about #corruption and a patient dying in a tent outside a hospital. Courtesy #DStv403 PIETERMARITZBURG - KwaZulu-Natal Premier Sihle Zikalala on Friday said the province s officials are taking swift action against those implicated in misconduct. A 67-year-old man died after being treated in a makeshift  fever ward in the Northdale hospital s parking lot. The managers who were responsible for allowing the treatment of patients in the outdoor space have been suspended. READ: KZN hospital managers suspended A tent was not meant for treatment, according to our understanding. That s where they [patients] were getting tested as they arrived and then be taken inside the hospital, Zikalala said. That is why, as the government, we have taken the decision to suspend those involved in this matter. It was not acceptable. It should not have happened and we have acted decisively. The KwaZulu-Natal Health MEC Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu has also reassigned the hospital s acting CEO to her original position as a maternal health specialist. The premier said not all the officials in KwaZulu-Natal should be viewed in a negative light as the department has taken swift action. - Coronavirus Hotline Number: 0800 029 999 from 8am to 4pm, Monday to Friday Help protect your loved ones by sharing this official South African government COVID-19 service with your family, friends and community.
