PAC: The resignation of Qedani Mahlangu will not bring back 94 lost lives

Former Gauteng Health MEC Qedani Mahlangu

1st February 2017


Font size: -+

The Pan Africanist Congress of Azania (PAC) sympathises with victims families for government's negligence. We do not want to play a blame-game because it is the entire health system which is in crises and not an individual.

We also want to highlight that it is not in Gauteng where there are visible loss of lives unnecessarily which go unreported in our media. Our health system have always been unable to service our people.


PAC strongly believes that there are important factors which should be taken seriously in the primary health care, those are;

1) Food security
2) Shelter
3) Health of African people
4) Education - deal with ignorance of people through awareness campaigns
5) Security & safety of people


The failure is not by one Qedani Mahlanu but the entire health system which is perpertually killing our people.

There are always long-queues where other patient passes on due to discomfort.  There are over-worked staff, they are understaffed. There is generally lack of resources to the entire system.

The resignation of an individual will not address our current crises, we just want to see the health sector being revolutionized and that's all.

From our understanding, we concede that the health care system must chiefly focus on preventative measures and primary health care so as to cut down the necessity to approach health facilities.

Health question should be understood by existence of poverty. It is a common knowledge that once a person eat under-nutritious or over-nutritious foods they develop certain diseases as their immune system collapses due to insufficient of key nutrients from the food one is consuming.

The food that African people come from the LAND which the PAC have been central to since 1959. The PAC took over from King Bambatha et al for fight for land return. Land is solution to all our problems.
