Prince Mshiyeni: Acting chief to steady hospital

2010-07-14 00:00

THE KZN Health Department has called upon Professor Rachel Gumbi to manage the Prince Mshiyeni Memorial Hospital.

This comes after the hospital’s former chief Njabulo Gwala was relieved of his duties by the department following allegations of poor performance and a lack of service delivery at the hospital.

The Witness reported in May that managers at four Durban hospitals, including Prince Mshiyeni, were relieved of their duties by the department following allegations of negligence, which involved the disappearance of bodies from the hospitals.

The managers were apparently redeployed to other “more suitable” positions.

Gumbi, former rector of the University of Zululand, was appointed as acting chief from June 7 for one year.
