David Makhura's spokesperson says the premier will visit Nompumelelo Sibiya, who claims she was mistreated at Mamelodi Hospital.

Gauteng Premier David Makhura is said to be 'shocked' by the case of a mother who claims she was mistreated at Mamelodi Hospital in Pretoria.

Nompumelelo Sibiya has told Bongani Bingwa how she was left alone to deliver her twin babies, who died shortly after birth.

Spokesperson for the Premier, Phumla Sekhonyana, says they will offer Nompumelelo all the help they can.

We will reach out to this lady. I have already spoken to the acting HOD of Social Development, we will be making contact with her to give counselling, because she is clearly traumatised.

Phumla Sekhonyana, Spokesperson for Gauteng Premier

Sekhonyana says Premier Makhura will be visiting the devastated mother this week.

She further says local government admits the health department is in need of an overhaul.

The premier said we are committing to changing the attitude of our health care workers. Of course there are many others who are dedicated and work very hard, but at the same time ,we must admit, we do need an overhaul of our health care system to make it more caring.

Phumla Sekhonyana, Spokesperson for Gauteng Premier

Sekhonyana says this is not the only negligence case of its kind:
