Health PS mum on matter
Ministry of Health Principal Secretary (PS) Dr Simon Zwane has failed to come out with an explanation on the foregoing situation in the public hospitals.
Efforts have been made to get him to state how government hopes to avert the situation as he was reached on his mobile phone, which first rang unanswered. When he was finally reached, he politely asked to be excused as he said he was in a meeting and requested to be called later. The PS was unable to answer calls forwarded to him later on concerning the issue. The Observer on Saturday later sent an SMS to Zwane who then responded that; “Your questions and concerns are acknowledged. Unfortunately, I am not in a good position to respond to you at the moment”.
