complained about frontline staff at health facilities allegedly turning
IFP Spokesperson on Health,
Ncamisile Nkwanyana said the right of all citizens to receive quality treatment
in public healthcare facilities is specifically guaranteed by our constitution.
Nkwanyana added that they are
calling the MEC of Health Dr Sibongiseni Dlomo to re-train the people there on
how to access the person if she/he is ill and the person if he/she comes to the

the patients, and instead attend to them patient.
She also said that if they
don’t want to do their work they must leave the work and get people who can do
the work properly, because they are dealing with people’s lives.
