The Democratic Alliance said the
Compensation fund is in a state of chaos and needs to be placed under
administration by the Department of Labour.
The DA Shadow minister of Labour
Sejamothopo Motau said he will write to the labour minister, Mildred Oliphant
and the director general of the labour department, Nkosinati Nhlekoto to
request a joint meeting to discuss this option as a possible solution.
Motau explains said that their
concern as the DA is that the compensation fund is struggling.
Motau said they have been receiving
threatening letters from doctors who have not being paid in time, saying that
they will refuse to assist compensation fund patients.
“The implications of that kind of thing
is serious that people can not lodge their applications for compensation, so we
believe if we do not do something very quickly working together with the Department
of Labour” Motau added.
