DENOSA & Gauteng Health Dept to remember health workers who died in Boksburg blast

The Democratic Nursing Organisation of South Africa (DENOSA) and the Gauteng Department of Health are set to remember the health workers who lost their lives in the Boksburg gas tank explosion.

Forty-one people, including eleven nurses and a driver at Tambo Memorial Hospital, lost their lives on Christmas Eve in 2022 when a gas tanker exploded after getting stuck under a low bridge.

The explosion caused huge structural damage to the hospital’s accident, emergency, and X-ray departments.

The commemoration comes as the world marks International Nurses Day on Thursday, under the banner, “Our Nurses. Our Future. The Economic Power of Care”.

DENOSA’s national leaders and Gauteng’s Health MEC Nomantu Nkomo-Ralehoko will lead Thursday’s event, which is dedicated to the victims of the blast.
