Hen­drick Maboe, 52

The Observer - - News -

Schiz­o­phrenic Hen­drick Maboe was moved from Life Esidi­meni without the knowl­edge of his fa­ther, Rev Joe Maboe (pic­tured above with a photo of his son). When Maboe found him in an NGO in Pre­to­ria, Hen­drick was hun­gry and his trousers were soaked with urine. “I saw death in his eyes,” says Maboe. “There were 40 of them in a garage. They didn’t have med­i­ca­tion, food, or wa­ter.” Maboe tried to take Hen­drick to see a doc­tor, but staff wouldn’t re­lease him. Four days later, Hen­drick died.
