Sama praises Sefularo

2010-04-06 13:37
Johannesburg – The late Deputy Health Minister Molefi Sefularo was a humble, well respected and very approachable person who made a huge difference to South Africa's healthcare, the SA Medical Association (Sama) said on Tuesday.

Spokesperson Dr Norman Mabasa said in a statement that the organisation was saddened by the death of Sefularo in a car crash on the N4 freeway in Pretoria West on Monday.

He said Sefularo made a huge difference in healthcare in his quiet and respectful way.

"He had a passion for overhauling healthcare in South Africa and was a major driving force behind the National Health Insurance (NHI) plan," Mabasa said.

"Dr Sefularo had a deep understanding of the politics of healthcare and the needs of healthcare professionals.

"The numerous interactions he had with Sama over the years showed his visionary leadership and enormous passion for accessible, good quality healthcare for all South Africans," Mabasa said.

He described Sefularo as a brilliant leader and said his death was a great loss to the medical profession and the country at large.

"Sama conveys its deepest sympathy and sincere condolences to his family," said Mabasa.
