Second Resignation at South African Provincial Health Department
Suspended Gauteng director of mental health Dr Makgabo Manamela has resigned. Her move follows that of Dr Barney Selebano, who stepped down as department of health head earlier in the week. Dr Selebano had testified at the Life Esidimeni arbitration hearings in Johannesburg where he took responsibility for the "regrettable" deaths of more than 140 mentally ill patients who died when they were moved to NGOs across the province.
