The Inkatha Freedom Party in KwaZulu-Natal is
gravely concerned by the ruling Party's refusal to build a
Clinic for the KwaMbonambi Community under uMfolozi
Municipality, Northern KZN.
During a visit by IFP’s Provincial Health
Spokesperson, Hon. Ncamsile Nkwanyana, the IFP discovered
that the community has been living without a clinic after their
mobile clinic was taken away by the KZN department of Health.
“It is appalling that in this day and age
there are still people who are being deprived of basic services
such as a proper healthcare service. The people of KwaMbonambi
have to travel to Richards Bay and Mpangeni area to get to a
It is also disturbing to learn that these people have pleaded
with both the Local Municipal and District Mayor for a Health
facility but were allegedly told that for as long as they vote
for the IFP they will not get any assistance,” said Hon. Nkwanyana, Shadow MEC for Health.
The IFP also noticed amongst other things
service delivery in the area is very poor.
“It is really sad that it has come to a point
whereby a community member has decided to use his house to
accommodate nurses just so those on treatment can get access to
their medication, however others travel to neighbouring areas to
get access to a healthcare facility,” said Hon. Nkwanyana.
