Families in Life Esidimeni tragedy threaten protest

Life Esidimeni tragedy

The Life Esidimeni tragedy continues to be a thorn in the Gauteng government’s side.

Families are now threatening to protest outside Premier David Makhura’s office on Monday.

That’s because they haven’t received their promised compensation.

In March – retired Deputy Chief Justice Dikgang Moseneke ordered government to pay the families of all Life Esidimeni patients from R1.2-million each.

At least 144 psychiatric patients died – after being moved from ill-equipped NGOs in 2016.
