The DA is horrified at the alleged kidnapping of a baby from Rob Ferreira Hospital.
According to reports a new born baby boy was stolen from Rob Ferreira Hospital this morning. Security measures at our hospitals need to be upgraded and a situation such as this should never happen.
The DA calls on the SAPS to prioritise this case to ensure that this baby is re-united with his mother as soon as possible. So too, the MEC of Health must launch an immediate investigation to determine if this kidnapping is at all a result of hospital staff negligence.
No parent deserves to experience such trauma. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time.
