Malema calls for the cancellation of Limpopo MEC Dr Phophi Ramathuba’s medical licence

Julius Malema’s Economic Freedom Fighters has called for the cancellation of Limpopo MEC Dr Phophi Ramathuba’s medical licence.

In a statement EFF said Ramathuba should be removed from office for humiliating a Zimbabwean patient who was awaiting surgery.

In an incident recorded and shared on social media, Ramathuba told a Zimbabwean patient admitted at a hospital in Bela-Bela that she was supposed to be with President Emmerson Mnangagwa.

South Africa’s opposition party said such utterances are uncalled for and should not be condoned by anyone.

The opposition party described  Ramathuba as a reckless populist trying to shift the responsibility of a collapsing healthcare sector on foreign nationals.
