It is good that the families of the Life Esidimeni victims have received a measure of justice and compensation. I would like an answer to this question: What did they do, before these tragic deaths, to raise the alarm about their loved ones starving + living in profound neglect?— Helen Zille (@helenzille) March 20, 2018
702 Breakfast Show presenter Bongani Bingwa has added his voice to those criticising Western Cape Premier Helen Zille for a tweet she posted about the families affected by the Life Esidimeni tragedy.
Bingwa says it left him 'gobsmacked' and says he was astonished, since one of the first people to raise the alarm when the families were being 'sent from pillar to post', was the DA's own Jack Bloom.
South Africa is a tough place and requires all of us to have tough skins, but I have rarely come across anything as insensitive, as heartless as that.— Bongani Bingwa, 702 Breakfast Show host
