'Irredeemable' - Bongani Bingwa likens former Gauteng Health MEC to Lady Macbeth
702 Breakfast Show host Bongani Bingwa has likened former Gauteng health MEC Qedani Mahlangu to Shakespeare's Lady Macbeth.
Speaking after former deputy chief justice Dikgang Moseneke's ruling on the Life Esidimeni tragedy, Bingwa says Mahlangu continues to shirk responsibility.
At least 144 mentally ill patients died after being moved to ill-equipped institutions from Life Esidimeni facilities.
There's a certain callousness that is required to turn a blind eye to human suffering because it is inconvenient to deal with it.Bongani Bingwa, 702 Breakfast Show host
It's one thing to ignore the misery of others, it's quite another to create it, having been warned not to - and then to pretend that you didn't know. That takes a particular kind of beast.Bongani Bingwa, 702 Breakfast Show host
Can anyone help Qedani Mahlangu who even now shows no remorse. Who even now maintains she is innocent. Who even now speaks of collective decisions and betrayals by officials who gave orders she was not aware of.Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show host
I hope Qedani has visions. I hope she wakes up in a cold sweat. I hope she hears voices - begging her, pleading with her; asking her why? I hope that when she goes to her doctors as a result, he repeats what was told to Lady Macbeth: "More needs she the divine than the physician."Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show host
