'Heartless hooligans' behind EMS attacks will be brought to book - Health MEC
Emergency Medical Services (EMS) personnel in Mabopane, Tshwane, have told Gauteng Health MEC Dr Gwen Ramokgopa about their concerns regarding recent attacks.
The MEC visited Mabopane on Monday to find out more about attacks on EMS personnel following the death of paramedic Chris Kekana in March, who was shot dead on duty.
Ramokgopa says that it is important that the criminals are identified and brought to book.
She adds the community has agreed to co-operate with police to ensure that the perpetrators are arrested.
We are going to follow up, there are suspects that are being investigated. Ballistic tests are also being done to follow through.Dr Gwen Ramokgopa, Gauteng Health MEC
The MEC also visited the family of Kekana's family to reassure them about their immediate plans to ensure justice.
She says the health department's staff are being trained on safety measures.
