A young Zimbabwean woman, Luyanda Moyo (21) died this week after being neglected at a South African hospital.
Luyanda gave birth at the Yusuf Dadoo hospital in Krugersdorp to a baby weighing 4kg.
Despite complaining of pain and excessive bleeding, she alleged that the medical staff in the maternity ward did not pay attention to her.
Luyanda’s uncle, Gibson Tshuma, told “The Star” newspaper that Luyanda was so neglected to the point of being the last patient in the ward.
Nurses found Luyanda dead hours after she gave birth.
Luyanda’s baby boy survived and is with his grandmother.
