Denosa condemns nurse shooting

2010-09-15 23:11

Johannesburg - The Democratic Nursing Organisation of SA (Denosa) on Wednesday condemned the shooting of an Mpumalanga nurse and her mother.

"We are angered and appalled by the persisting violent onslaughts on nurses who render healthcare to our people under difficult circumstances," Denosa spokesperson Asanda Fongqo said in a statement.

He said such brutality was unacceptable and undermined the work done by nurses around the country, who had managed to save millions of lives.

"We call on law enforcement agencies to ensure that culprits are brought to book... as such inhumane acts cannot be tolerated."

The nurse died on Tuesday night after she and her mother were shot on Sunday, allegedly by relatives of a patient she cared for at Lydenburg Hospital.

Jackson Patrick Mdluli, 37, and Zondi Motau, 31, appeared in the Lydenburg Magistrate's Court on Monday charged with two counts of attempted murder.
