South African medical students studying in Cuba have promised to spend less time in church and more time in class, KwaZulu-Natal Health MEC Sibongiseni Dhlomo said on Thursday.

They had undertaken to reduce the number of hours they spent on church activities, which he welcomed, he told reporters at Addington Hospital in Durban.

Dhlomo and a delegation of government officials visited Cuba on January 6, after reports that a group of 150 students in Havana was spending up to seven hours a day, seven days a week, on church activities rather than their medical studies.
