DA to assess the impact of loadshedding at Tembisa Hospital

Today, Wednesday,1 March 2023, the Democratic Alliance (DA) Tembisa Political Head, Refiloe Nt’sekhe MPL will conduct an oversight inspection at Tembisa Hospital.

The purpose of the oversight is to assess the impact of the load-shedding at the hospital.

This follows allegations that there have been several deaths of minors reported at the hospital as a result of load-shedding. It is further alleged that the hospital has been unable to secure sufficient fuel for its generator and the parents of the deceased minors have not been informed of these challenges.

The DA will engage with the hospital management to ascertain whether these allegations are true or false and get further insight on the challenges that the hospital is faced daily.

We will also determine the impact of load-shedding in hindering this hospital from delivering quality and adequate health care services.

Members of the media are invited and there will be an opportunity for interviews and photographs.
