DA Slams Rahima Moosa Hospital CEO After Video’s Showing Pregnant Women Laying on Floors Go Viral

Apr 06, 2022

By Umamah Bakharia 

The DA is calling on the Rahima Moosa Hospital in Johannesburg CEO to return to her office.

This came after a video made the rounds on social media showing pregnant women lying on the cold hospital floors. The party says that the CEO should be attending to such issues full time.

Johannesburg MMC for Health and Social Development, Ashley Sauls, came out to say that the hospital is burdened by undocumented foreigners who are taking up the space at the hospitals.

Radio Islam discusses this further with DA’s Gauteng Health MPL, Jack Bloom, who says that foreign nationals cannot simply be blamed for the health care system’s failure.

Bloom says according to the records of the Gauteng legislature, since the hospital CEO, Nozuko Mkabayi was appointed in January 2021 she has worked a total of 182 days since then. Sources state that she has, however, been working from home.

“Doctors and nurses don’t have the luxury of working from home [and] if you are the boss of a large hospital, you obviously have to set an example and be there,” says Bloom.

The DA suggests that better management would assist to prevent such issues from occurring.

He adds that there are extra patients at Rahima Moosa due to the continued closure of the Charlotte Maxeke Johannesburg hospital.

According to Bloom, the Gauteng health department’s budget is being used for the wrong things and corruption is playing a major role.
