MUCH have already been said about the poor state of South African state hospitals and the mediocre service patients receive in these institutions that could at best be described as 3rd world administered slaughterhouses where even babies die at a staggering rate at the hands of incompetent staff members and shortage of medical supplies and material.

The main problems of this total degradation of once superb facilities under white rule could be laid directly at the door of an incompetent corrupt African communist regime that cares only to line their pockets with millions of dollars from foreign donations, corrupt deals , plundering of the state coffers – and tender fraud. To add to this sinking ship are the ill-trained and careless BEEE staff- as well as the continuous violent strikes by hospital staff that rather would adhere to the call of their union bosses – than honoring their medical oath to care for their patients.

Now again another state hospital hit the headlines due to poor service and a shortage of staff and funds. The corridors of the Mahikeng Provincial Hospital ring hollowly. There is no staff in sight, except for two security guards patrolling each ward entrance. Inside one of the wards, the powder-blue walls are littered with notices apologizing to patients about the “interruption “ of health services.

In the “chronic medical” ward, Ntombizodwa Matthews lies on one of the beds, wearing an ANC-branded T-shirt and jeans. Her sister, husband and neighbor are at her bedside. “Ntombi, re tlile go go lata [we came to fetch you],” Nomvula Matthews whispers to her sister. “Re ya gae neh (We are going home, okay?”)  Matthews does not respond. The three lift her up and place her in a wheelchair. Before departing, their neighbor Nokuthula Shezi prays. She asks God to lead the way and bring healing to the sick.

Other patients who have been discharged watch as Mabuti Mphafa, Matthews’s husband, wheels her towards the entrance of the hospital. At the gate, Shezi folds a blanket and places it in a wheelbarrow. The trio lifts Matthews again and puts her in the wheelbarrow. Her fragile body barely moves and her limbs dangle from the sides. “The security guard told us we can’t take the wheelchair home. Ntombi is too weak to walk home,” says her sister. “This will have to do.” Matthews (41) was a relatively healthy person, her family says. They became concerned a month ago when her left breast started to darken. Within three weeks, her breast had turned black and a lump as big as a golf ball had formed inside.

“We thought she may have breast cancer. The hospital was the only place where we could find out exactly what was wrong,” says Nomvula.

Last Friday, her family called the hospital for an ambulance after Matthews had spent the previous day vomiting violently. This was her second hospital visit in two weeks. “When she went the first time, they just put her on a drip and then discharged her the following day,” says her mother, Keitheng Matthews. “They didn’t give my child anything — not even Panado.” Nomvula has been going to the hospital every day to feed and bathe her sister. “I don’t want to even imagine what would have happened if I didn’t do that,” she says. On her last visit, she was told that the family must take her home because there was no staff to look after her. “Ntombi went to the hospital walking and talking, but today she cannot even feed or clean herself,” says her mother. She was discharged with neither a diagnosis nor medication.

The protest action by members of the National Education, Health and Allied Workers’ Union (Nehawu) at the North West medicine supply depot has left hospitals and clinics in the province without a supply of drugs. Nurses and other staff members have also downed tools, leaving health facilities without anyone to attend to patients. In January, some antibiotics were out of stock, an intern doctor told the Mail & Guardian. By the end of last week, nearly all the antibiotics had run out.

But the problems in Mahikeng go beyond this protest action, Shezi says. “This hospital has been a disaster for a long time. Patients are ill treated — that’s if they get a chance to even be seen by a doctor or nurse.” About 500m further on, Nomvula takes over pushing the wheelbarrow as Mphafa catches his breath. Shezi balances Matthews’s head with a pillow as her husband assumes the role of providing her shade from the bright mid-morning sun.

The trio walk in a synchronized motion, guiding their precious cargo and contemplating each step on the bumpy gravel road. The squeaking wheelbarrow draws the attention of residents and passers-by in Lomanyaneng village, but this does not deter them. About 40 minutes later, they approach the gate of the Matthews family home. Keitheng (77) can barely bring herself to look at her daughter. “Jesus! Jesus! Jesus!” she cries. Mphafa and Nomvula carry Matthews into the house. A picture of a smiling Madiba overlooks the living room. In the bedroom next door, they gently place her on the bed.

Nomvula brings a bowl of lesheleshele (soft porridge). She meticulously measures every spoonful before placing it in her sister’s mouth. “Metsa, metsa, ausi [Swallow, swallow, sister],” she says. Nomvula feeds her sister another spoonful. She waits until she has swallowed the last one. This is not the first time that the government has failed the locals, Keitheng says: “Mmuso o o phela o sotla ka rona ngwanaka [All this government does is break our hearts, my child].”

Lomanyaneng residents still get their water from JoJo tanks. The Matthews’s neighbor, Anna Modise, prepares for her daily walk to the water tank in their section. “They [the local municipality] came to refill the tank three days ago, but sometimes they don’t come for up to two weeks, she says. When the tanks run dry, residents are forced to use prepaid water cards. Many cannot afford to load their cards, but the prepaid water taps are often without water anyway. “If the JoJo tank is empty, we just do without water. I don’t have the money to buy water,” Modise says. “I don’t even have a wheelbarrow to go to another tank.”

Nomvula doesn’t know whether her sister will ever talk or walk again. Until she does, she will take care of her. Shezi walks back to the hospital. She comforts all the patients who are waiting to be fetched by their families. “Our loved ones are going to die because of one man,” says Shezi. “How selfish and evil can a person be to let his own people die like this?”


EDITOR’s FOOTNOTE: ( This is but one incident of many that plagued the South African system since the ANC terrorists took control from the heinous  and treacherous  National Party in 1994. Being incompetent to govern a country- they simply saw to it that “Number one” gets looked after first- themselves. Up to today the ANC ‘Fat Cats” are still looking after themselves and their bulging pockets. They care less about their own kind- and to add to the already failing system- they invite millions more stray black Africans to flood the country from neighboring starving countries. This is too much for the small handful (predominantly white) taxpayers to carry. One of the “solutions” the criminals in control imposed to try to level the tattered  income-expense balance sheet- is to spike taxes and inflate petrol prices. Still- with the country’s financial status looking like a road disaster- the “fat cats” proceed to plunder the sate coffers- stealing much needed funds that were supposed to be channeled to social welfare.

Yet liberal fools such as Theresa May  keep on donating British hard earned taxes in  millions of pounds in supposed to be “black uplifment” schemes- but alas that “donations never reach the poor ” previous disadvantaged” as the lion share always- as usual- lands in the pockets of the criminal ANC burocrats for  so-called “administration” purposes.

This then leave the institutions such as hospitals, clinics, defense force  and schools stranded without supplies , material and well trained staff. Mahikeng is only but the proverbial “tip” of the ice-berg. Most of the other state hospitals such as Bloemfontein, Pelonomi, Baragwanath , Kempton Park and many more face the same incompetent and dilapidated predicament. Ironically this blacks that now complains still keep on voting these criminals back into power every election- JUST to start bitching, complaining and rioting due to “poor service delivery.” One cannot phantom the way the African mind is ticking- now can we? -Ed)
