The arbitration process between the State and the families of victims of the Life Esidimeni tragedy continued on Thursday.
More than 100 patients died after the department terminated its contract with the Life Esidimeni group and moved over 1700 patients last March.
A woman whose son, Thabo, died after being moved from a facility says she still hasn't accepted that he’s gone because she’s yet to receive answers about what exactly led to his death.
Merriam Monyane has been testifying about the condition in which she found her son at the Cullinan Care and Rehabilitation Centre.
Eyewitness News reporter Thando Khubeka has more on the story.
She says she was never told of the move. S, she only got a call in the days leading to her son's death.— Thando Kubheka, EWN reporter
She said she found her son in a very bad condition, in fact her son was wheeled to her in a bed and she suspects that her son hadn't eaten for weeks. He later died.— Thando Kubheka, EWN reporter
She said that she still finds it hard to believe that he is no longer with her, as she was planning to retire and look after her son. Of course she is here pleading for answers, she says she wants some sort of closure.— Thando Kubheka, EWN reporter
