Herman Mashaba on his investigation into narrate hospitals:
I deem the narrate of our hospitals is principally very depressing. When the president introduced the lockdown remaining 12 months, we applauded him – and I grew to become as soon as a type of who applauded his instantaneous response to this pandemic, with the hope that the opinion grew to become as soon as to place collectively our efficiently being services for the pandemic. Sadly, in the event you speed up to majority of our public hospitals – if no longer all – the inform is principally the more serious than what it grew to become as soon as to it grew to become as soon as pre-Covid.
The motive why, is as a result of our infrastructure is collapsing – and it began collapsing prolonged before Covid. Since the daybreak of democracy, the main focus grew to become as soon as on altering names – some of them surely altering names additional than as soon as. I don’t know what the ANC authorities perception by altering the title of of a constructing. So clearly that has been the primary mission.
The 2nd mission is the non-employment of South African scientific professionals. Scientific medical doctors and nurses. As you are aware, since 1994, many of our educated efficiently being employees comprise left this nation. They’re sitting today in London, Dubai, the Middle East, Australia and so forth. However now we comprise the audacity to speed up and follow our younger of us in Cuba and produce Cuban medical doctors at practically thrice what it might mannequin to follow a physician efficiently in South Africa, for that matter.
On the 40,000 frozen scientific posts in SA:
The authorities had frozen 40,000 posts in healthcare. I be taught about this in a single of many papers before I raised the dread, the place 500 educated, extremely skilled medical doctors have been no longer employed on this nation. So exact now, as I’m speaking to you, we’re operating a petition until the tip of this month.
As of remaining evening, I’ll educate you that 625 unemployed efficiently being professionals, medical doctors and nurses – extremely educated – who’re unemployed today. However we’re spending over R400 million on Cuban medical doctors. We are ready to path this petition until finish of the month.
We are ready to then make a selection the Department of Properly being to show to South Africans, as to why [there is] such an gigantic quantity of extremely skilled scientific people who’re, by a ways, higher than the Cubans. Why they don’t seem to be employed to when now we comprise the cash to herald Cuban medical doctors into our nation.
On what went horrible with the planning:
There grew to become as soon as no planning. That’s a mission. There grew to become as soon as no planning. Let me attractive remind you of the Gauteng provisional authorities. They’re speaking about attractive over 500 beds created [during the] lockdown, after we’ve acquired hundreds of our of us going to hospitals today. I’m positive you seen the what is going on down at Steve Biko Properly being facility [in] the remaining few days. Undoubtedly, even as much as this morning, any particular person known as me from Pretoria to verbalize, you’re most welcome to succeed in and look the narrate of our efficiently being services.
This most recent authorities is no longer in authorities to be taught society. They’re in authorities to be within the case of the narrate of sources. They are there for the looting. Public provider is no longer in line of their priorities. They get up every morning to speed up making an attempt how noteworthy they’re going to need. That’s why when Covid-19 hit and Presidential Cyril Ramaphosa introduced that R500 billion stimulus bundle, I wrote a letter the next morning, [saying] ‘Mr. President, you are surrounded by the hyenas. They’re going to deem that this R500 billion is for stealing. Please make sure that you just construct in appropriate, acceptable measures round the way you’re going to own’.
On the Covid-19 vaccine:
Properly, President Ramaphosa made it reasonably positive that authorities does no longer comprise the cash. The cabinet is naked. There’s attractive no cash. So what took attribute to the cash? I don’t should educate you. You understand, that the cash – trillions of public moneys – over the remaining three years has been looted.
