Mother and son’s ordeal ends on streets

2008-07-03 00:00

City residents came to the rescue of a sick woman who they found sitting with her eight-year-old son on a pavement in Church Street on Wednesday evening.

Molefe, who came from Lesotho to live in a Cramond informal settlement outside Pietermaritzburg more than 10 years ago, told her rescuers that she had been sent away from Northdale Hospital that morning despite feeling sick. She had swollen feet, was coughing non-stop and complained of severe back pains. She said that after the hospital gave her an x-ray, she was told that she was fine and ordered to go home. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
