The request from the National Department was that the provinces present the lists of hospitals to be considered for the exemption presented by the Northwest Province.

However, the hospital list just released does not have a single hospital from the North West Province.

Reacting to the list, MEC Madoda Sambatha expressed concern that there appears to be no appreciation of health as an essential service.

“Provinces cannot be treated differently in a crisis.

Like other provinces, the North West Province submitted a list of hospitals to be exempt from load reduction.

We raised a concern when we saw a hospital from Mpumalanga on the list.

When the first list was published, we asked that the list of hospitals that we have presented be corrected and included, but now in the new list of 37, only North West does not appear.

It is not true that North West did not present”, said MEC Madoda Sambatha The MEC has followed up by requesting the Minister to intervene immediately as the North West Province cannot be treated as if it is not part of South Africa Hospitals in the North West Province will be severely affected if the load shedding continues.

At this time some services are interrupted and patients are beginning to complain about the number of times they have to wait for the electricity to come back on.

If the North West Province is not included next week based on your submission, we will be left with no choice but to organize a provincial march against Eskom and demand that the Province be included in the lists of hospitals that are exempt from charging.”
