Mashaba promises 24/7 clinics for Joburg

2016-06-26 11:37

Johannesuburg - The DA's mayoral candidate for Johannesburg Herman Mashaba promised to keep the city's clinics open 24/7 if he was voted in on August 3.

"I intend throwing away the keys to city-run clinics and they will be open 24 hours a day to cater for the needs of Joburg's residents," he said in a speech prepared for delivery at the Princess informal settlement in Roodepoort.

He lamented shortages at the clinics and claimed the needs of the community were being ignored.

Mashaba said the Princess Clinic was severely under-resourced and under-staffed and was battling to cope with the numbers of people who come for care from the surrounding areas.

The Princess informal settlement grew from a settlement on old plots between Roodepoort and Krugersdorp. Built close to the railway line and the main roads that once connected the towns, the community grown rapidly over the years.

The city has been arranging electrical connections and water access, and is providing some housing.
