Jobs Trader Arrested In Hospital

SH Mbuyane

The ANC believes that fraud and corruption are broad societal problems prevalent in both public and private sectors, requiring the commitment of all citizens in society to eradicate them. We therefore applaud the arrest of a fraudulent employee at the Bheki Mlangeni District Hospital in Jabulani, Soweto, Gauteng, for the alleged sale of jobs. The suspect was working for the National Health Laboratory Service at the Bheki Mlangeni hospital premises.

The arrest happened after three members of the public arrived at the hospital looking for the accused, seeking a refund of R5 000. The hospital immediately called the police, who arrested the suspect.

The ANC welcomes the hospital's unequivocal stance on the matter, distancing itself from such behaviour, and furthermore its unequivocal pronunciation that any of their staff members, who engage in such corrupt actions will be dealt with accordingly. The ANC commends the police for their swift action in arresting the suspect, and members of the community for alerting the hospital management. We make a clarion call for all South African citizens who when approached for a job in exchange for money, to report this to the law enforcement agencies.

I thank you
