Dr Gwen Ramokgopa: 'We must learn from our past mistakes' #CharlotteMaxeke

Gauteng MEC for Health Dr Gwen Ramokgopa says because of strained financial resources there was no money to pay bonuses or 2016-2017.

She says they are aware of the situation at Charlotte Maxeke Hospital and are working tirelessly to resolve it.

This comes after Nehawu cancelled its planned Wednesday strike to protest unpaid overtime worked.
