Makhosi Khoza threatened during oversight visit to Mpumalanga hospital

Parliament's portfolio committee on Public Service and Administration, Dr Makhosi Khoza, received death threats while conducting an oversight visit in Mpumalanga.

Khoza explains that the oversight committee conducted an unannounced on-sight visit at Matikwana Hospital, but they found out the hospital knew about the visit.

We discovered that there were patients who had been there for two days, and they had not even been given their files, which means it was still a long way before they see a doctor.

Khosa says they then raised their "disgust and outrage" with the hospital management.

We were feeling that we were being misled with the information we were told in the bedroom.

She says she was threatened by the member of the executive, who identified himself to her, after she had an interview with SABC's Tsepiso Makwetla.

He was furious. He was telling me how dare I speak to the media about what is happening in Mpumalanga.

He made all sorts of threats.

In the early hours of the morning I then received a call that was very detailed about my whole travel, from when I left, until I got to the hotel I was going to check in at, and even the room number.

The matter is now before Parliament.
