Host Xolnai Gwala says it was revealed by the Gauteng Health MEC Gwen Ramokgopa that 1338 babies had died at birth in the Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital over the past three years.
This was in reply to questions posed by DA MPL Jack Bloem.
But it is claimed that no negligence was involved in these deaths or in babies who became brain damaged after birth.
Imagine nine months of pregnancy...some anxiety, and the excitement of expecting a little one. And then at the end of it all, all you are told is that sorry your little one has passed on.— Xolani Gwala, 702 host
Gwala says it is not just at Bara but seems a far more widespread problem in the health care system. He asks 'Does nobody care anymore?'
