Life Esidimeni Family Committee is outraged by the re-election of Qedani Mahlangu.

Controversial former MEC for Health in Gauteng Qedani Mahlangu made into Gauteng's African National Congress (ANC) Provinces Executive Committee (PEC) over the weekend at the party's elective conference.

Mahlangu was found to have been responsible for the Life Esidimeni tragedy, in which over 143 mentally ill people died.

Family members of those who died have expressed their anger at the appointment.

As a committee, all I can say is, I wish I could share some of the messages that the families have shared with us.

Christine Nxumalo, Life Esidimeni Family Committee and Sister of victim

The families are angry, they are very disappointed that something so heinous could happen. And you still re-elect the person for the harm of that process.

She adds that even though Premier of Gauteng David Makhura said that Mahlangu’s case has been submitted to the ANC’s integrity committee, they still feel that more needs to be done.
