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
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.
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.
