There have been 111 disciplinary cases so far, but 52 people who paid for their jobs are still working at the hospital. This includes nurses, porters and clerks who paid between R2500 – R10 000 for their jobs.
Jack Bloom, DA Gauteng Shadow MEC for Health says: “This is very unfair to better qualified people who have lost out because of corruption in the employment process”.
“I am also concerned that there have been credible accusations of sexual favours demanded for employment at the hospital, but these have not been properly investigated.
I suspect that there are other hospitals where this occurs and there needs to be harsh consequences for those involved, including criminal charges” says Bloom.
The DA will continue to expose hiring scams and push for real accountability to stamp them out.
