The Democratic Alliance wants a report on the competency of hospital CEOs to urgently be made public.
Spokesperson Mike Waters says this week’s tragic death of five babies at the Jubilee Hospital in Pretoria, allegedly due to faulty incubators, is the latest in a series of infant deaths in state hospitals.
According to Waters, the deaths have been attributed largely to poor management and insufficient resources. The DA has applied for access to the thus far confidential report compiled by the Development Bank of South Africa.
