MEDIA STATEMENT BY THE
INKATHA FREEDOM PARTY


KZN Health MEC Should Not Politicise
Mobile Clinic Donation From the IFP

12 July 2013    

  

 

THE Inkatha Freedom Party in KwaZulu-Natal has lashed out at the Provincial Health MEC, Dr Sbongiseni Dhlomo, for declining to accept a Mobile clinic which was given to the IFP by a Durban businessman.

 

“Receiving that mobile clinic from the generous benefactor marked a milestone for IFP. We welcomed the clinic in light of the Party’s concern that basic health care still eludes many impoverished South Africans.  It is totally unacceptable for the MEC of Health to deny such a gesture from the IFP,” said Hon. Ncamsile Nkwanyana, Shadow MEC for Health.

 

The clinic will tangibly articulate the IFP’s commitment to the access of essential healthcare services for vulnerable people. The IFP has championed the fight for impoverished individuals to have access to a quality healthcare system, which is a daunting obstacle South African’s face.

 

“The MEC should know best then to put Political differences before the health of our people. The mobile clinic will greatly alleviate the plight of those in need of healthcare. Communities will be identified and assisted as commensurate with the Party’s legacy of caring,” said Hon.  Nkwanyana.

 

The IFP welcomes the Humanitarian gesture and acknowledges the role this clinic will play in the lives of the people impoverished and burdened with their own health problems, as well as the healthcare of their families. The IFP welcomed this donation with no doubt that the clinic will ease the plight of the people.

 

“The people in this Province mostly in rural areas have been robbed of their basic human rights to provision of good health care services,” said Hon.  Nkwanyana.
