The North West has been disturbed by violent protests recently. The national government has since moved in and placed the province under administration. The inter-ministerial committee has committed to stay in the North West until all the issues have been resolved. The unions are taking the North West government to task over alleged corruption in the department. They have shut down medical services to societies by going on a go-slow at pharmaceutical depots. The union reps said the NW health department was already in trouble before the current strike. The strike has led to the closure of the province’s pharmaceutical depot, from which all medical and surgical supplies are dispatched to clinics and hospitals. Some clinics are turning patients away, while others have run out of basic supplies and while talks between unions and government have been happening, not much has been happening elsewhere. Last month the union and other workers marched to the office of Premier Supra Mahumapelo, demanding that he resign or be removed. Instead of reporting to their posts, workers have been meeting at the department’s head office to request, among other things, a performance bonus and the sacking of department head Thabo Lekalakala. Thabo Lekalakala has been involved in controversial tenders, including the R180 million mobile clinic contract given to Gupta related Mediosa, without going out to tender.
