Psychiatric man attacks patients

2011-01-10 17:27

Polokwane - A psychiatric patient attacked people waiting to be helped at a hospital in Limpopo last week, the provincial health department said on Monday.

A 35-year-old man from Phalaborwa was brought to the Maphuta Malatji Hospital by his mother for a check-up, spokesperson Cecil Motsepe said in a statement.

At the hospital he allegedly started assaulting the only two white patients in the queue. He then turned on another two people before security guards restrained him.

"The hospital management will today visit the family of the aggrieved parties with the aim of conveying an apology and to demonstrate that the actions of the alleged aggressor party are regrettable.

"We are not sure what the family wants to do, but we will not stand in their way if they want to lay charges," Motsepe said.

    All I can say is imagine if it was the other way around, i.e. a white patient attacking the only 2 black patients in the queue: The whole of the blinking ANC would've been there already ...

    My bet is that Malema would approve of this man's actions, and try organize him a spot in government...

      Couldn't have said it better...on both of the above... But watch the Victims will let it go on account of his mental instability ... and nobody will see that act of Forgiveness... If it was the other way around however Like @ebdg3000 said, all hell would have broken loose.

      How sure are we this patient was not actually Malema himself?

      he needs to go to prison first

      it was not malema because he was not eating nando's

    "...he allegedly started assaulting the only two white patients in the queue." Nothing to see here folks. It's not racism. No need for the outrage and international outcry like that of the dangerous and violent old lady a few months ago - C'mon News24, somewhere there's a libtard whose about to have a heart attack. That said, big up to the management and Motsepe for handling the situation professionally.

    A psychiatric patient is a patient despite the colour of his skin, why do you state the colour of those who are involved? unless if your aim is to progress friction.What if he sow two ghosts trying to feed him to the lions or calling him all sorts of names? Part of the world's bitterness is caused by insensitive reporting.

      Big Mouth - 2011-01-10 18:26

      Nobody was fed to the Lions ahole. A black and a white guy disposed of a DEAD body by throwing it into the lions den. There was no person anymore, only a dead body. Get it ?

      If he saw "two ghosts trying to feed him to the lions" he would have been imagining it since Mark Crossley had 3 black accomplices. He would also have to have a good memory since that happened all the way back in 2004. But don't worry, I know you'll remind us about it for the rest of time. How many of these 3,768 people have YOU heard about?

    For what reason has the News24 site made mention of the peopels colour other than to excite the white people and to push their idea that their is a genocide here in south africa? poor reporting, as if the white people werent worried anough as it is. please man we blacks are not going to chase you away or do funny things when mandela dies, we are more interested in ourselves than you guys, relax.

      SuperTrooper - 2011-01-10 18:52

      Tell that to Mr Juli-ASS "I want to nationalise everything currently white-owned" Malema!! The genocide is already happening man, you obviously dont read a lot of news to you? But then again, I'm sitting in Dubai - we dont have blacks here = NO CRIME or MURDERS!

      SEMATSATSA - 2011-01-10 19:11

      Good one, they think someone is watching them, what are they after all.Aren't they so paranoid? maybe even those two who claims to be attacked,smoked 'ittsy' before queueing for a top up.LOL.

      Do you speak for all the blacks or just for yourself and your little circle of friends ?

  • SEMATSATSA - 2011-01-10 19:05

    @ groot mond, No wonder you chose to call yourself that,the unconscious says it all, you brain is = a pea and your s is = your mouth.That's why you fail to see the aim of this posting.

  • SEMATSATSA - 2011-01-10 19:48

    @ ALFRED,at least you are right on one, psychiatric patients have memories too, and some memories become fixed.
