MEC to investigate Letaba Hospital Fire

Langa Bodlani (MPL)

Spokesperson on Health

The DA has learnt with concern about the fire that broke out at Letaba Hospital.

Although the cause of fire is not yet known, the hospital is a place where our people are cared for and all measures must be put in place that they are not endangered.

If the cause of fire is due to human failure, then this must be probed and if it is due to faulty equipment, then all steps must be taken that this equipment be replaced.

We will write to the MEC of Health to urge him to start an urgent investigation into this matter.
