Health Minister Dr Aaron Motsoaledi says there are 19 unidentified bodies of Life Esidimeni patients despite police and forensic investigations and efforts to find relatives and families.
702 Breakfast host, Xolani Gwala, comments on the issue.
Whilst there is a very good reason for us to blame government how it has handled this issue, but also as families we must take some responsibility.— Xolani Gwala, 702 Breakfast host
People will come to us and say you are saying all of this because you don't understand the trauma of looking after a psychiatric patients, but a visit to somebody in some of these institutions shows ubuntu.— Xolani Gwala, 702 Breakfast host
First and foremost, it's a responsibility of a particular family to look after those individuals.— Xolani Gwala, 702 Breakfast host
Of course, we can blame government. But, we have got to put a finger of blame to ourselves as families and community structure.— Xolani Gwala, 702 Breakfast host
