The South African Communist Party in the Western Cape said
they reject the illogical justification made by the MEC of Health, Theuns
Botha said the University of Stellenbosch and the University of Cape Town are more than capable of producing the best doctors in the world.
SACP Provincial Spokesperson Masonwabe Sokoyi said the MEC’s
ongoing rejection of potential opportunity to send young people to study
medicine in Cuba also emanates from the General Secretary of the SACP and
Minister of the Higher Education and Training, Comrade Blade Nzimande’s
continuous battle to highlight this erroneous neoliberal tactic to stunt
working class students from studying medicine in a revolutionary Communist
Sokoyi said furthermore the General Secretary further illustrated
the malicious agenda of the DA MEC by highlighting that the Western Cape is the
only province that does not make provision for students to study medicine in Cuba.
“Theuns Botha is of the belief that the University of Stellenbosch and
the University Of Cape Town are capable enough to provide sufficient doctors to the Western Cape” said
