SA Medical Association president Dr Angelique Coetzee reflects on the murder of anaesthetist Dr Abdulhay Munshi.

Anaesthetist Dr Abdulhay Munshi who was accused of culpable homicide charges after 10-year-old Zayyaan Sayed died following a routine surgery last year, was gunned down on Wednesday.

Munshi along with paediatrician Dr Peter Beale were facing charges after the death of Sayed.

Mandy Wiener on the Midday Report chats to News24 journalist Azarrah Karrim and SA Medical Association president Dr Angelique Coetzee to give more insight on the shooting.

When I got to the scene Dr Munshi's body had still not been taken and forensics were gathering evidence at the time.

She spoke to witnesses who said they heard four gunshots before they saw a car fleeing.

I got confirmation that it was indeed Dr Munshi who was shot in the back. Nothing was taken from his car. His phone, wallet and tablet were still in the car.

Dr Coetzee says the association is shocked and condemns the shooting in the strongest language.

Something like this should never have happened and it is a sad day when a country cannot guarantee the safety of its healthcare workers.
