DA welcomes KZN Health HOD’s dismissal

By: Dr Imran Keeka DA KZN Spokesperson on Health THE DA in KwaZulu-Natal welcomes the dismissal of provincial Health HOD, Sibongile Zungu, by means of a recent court ruling. We have, for a long time, called for Zungu to be replaced in light of the many issues of serious mismanagement under her watch. While she leaves with many years of institutional knowledge and experience, the DA firmly believes that it is in the department’s long-term best interests to ensure that she does not return, should she appeal her dismissal. The ANC habit of recycling cadres – even those who have proved incompetent in their previous roles – looms large as the province’s leadership scramble to find a new health head. The issue was recently placed under the spotlight with the alleged appointment of Mr Ndoda Biyela as KZN Health CFO, despite leaving his job as CFO of the Gauteng Health department under a cloud. The position of Health HOD in KZN is far more than just a critical post. The role demands absolute integrity and an unblemished track record. The DA sincerely hopes that Dr Zungu will not be replaced by yet another individual who has underperformed elsewhere within government structures and who has the stain of corruption hanging over their heads.
