An Open Letter to Dr. Mokgethi, Gauteng MEC for Health


About a month ago, I wrote an open letter to Dr. Nolutshungu, the new head of department for the Gauteng Department of Health. The letter had the desired effect, with Dr. Mokgethi answering some of the questions on her colleague’s behalf in the Gauteng Provincial Legislature.

These answers were appreciated, although some of them didn’t really do much more than circle the actual questions asked. As they weren’t specifically directed at the MEC, I do thank her for attempting to give some clarity though.

There are a number of pertinent questions that still have needed to be asked, and certainly do require answering. For this reason I have, once again, gone the open letter route, this time to Dr. Mokgethi herself.
