‘Qedani Mahlangu helped people die then she ran away’ – Stephen Grootes

For the past few weeks, the public has heard details of the horror that took place at the Life Esidimini facility, from the families of the people that died, and how victims of the tragedy had plastic in their stomachs.

702 presenter Stephen Grootes says that a family was even told that their relative was fine, fit and healthy but in fact, they had been dead for two months. He adds that in the Life Esidimeni saga there was also the cover-up - where a butchery was found to be used as a morgue.

The mediation process which asked the officials who were involved in taking happy and healthy people to starve and die were questioned. He adds that the public even learned that Qedani Mahlangu went overseas to write exams and was waiting to be asked to testify before she could come back.

All they said is that they were following instructions, that they had to follow Government protocol.

I couldn’t believe someone could be that selfish and thoughtless.

Stephen Grootes, 702 presenter

She simply didn’t care about the people who died, she didn’t care about their families she just went to go and study in another country.
