Xolani Gwala congratulates KZN Health MEC for leading from the front

KwaZulu Natal Health MEC Sibongiseni Dhlomo cleared his schedule to perform post-mortem examinations ensuring that all bodies that require burial this weekend are examined in time and released.

Dhlomo decided to intervene after he heard that there are disruptions at the Park Rynie mortuary, south coast of KwaZulu Natal, and bodies were not being released.

We would like to pay tribute to someone who has shown that it is possible to lead from the front.
