Daphney Ndhlovu, a social worker at Cullinan Care Rehabilitation Centre, admitted in evidence that ethics were violated to appease senior health officials in the Life Esidimeni saga. At last, a witness who is prepared to tell it like it is.

The fact that 59 patients remain unaccounted for is a disgraceful transgression of human rights, coupled with gross incompetence, for which both the MEC and senior Gauteng health officials should be charged criminally.

Those who are registered with the Health Professions Council of SA should be removed from the roll of practitioners.

It is inconceivable that 59 patients can go missing. Imagine what first-world countries think of the idiots professing to run mental health care in SA.

They have debased our country and continue unrepentant, in concert with other government departments, to sow mayhem and devastation in SA.
