Naledi Chirwa took to Twitter to question the manner in which local media represents the current Minister of Health, Dr Zweli Mkhize, by suggesting a biased approach.
The Economic Freedom Fighters’ (EFF) Naledi Chirwa took to Twitter on Tuesday, 19 January 2021, to question the manner in which local media portrays Minister of Health, Dr Zweli Mkhize. Chirwa appears to be of the belief that Mkhize is being lauded by the media, despite the real state of his department. She suggested that the Department of Health is, in fact, facing a fiscalcrisis like many other departments.
She stated, “How the hell does South African media manage to present Minister Zwelini Mkhize as a different entity altogether to the unravelling crisis of healthcare in SA? How do you only cover the good stuff he says and not together with the inconsistency on the ground?”
Chirwa went on to state her observations on the alleged regression she has knowledge about relating to the Health Department. She claimed that the Health Department has been regressing for the past two years in all aspects, including finances and management.
See the post below.
The department this man is Minister of has been regressing for two years now. Before covid19. Finances, management, EVERYTHING. He’s failing. I’ve never seen failures of the NDoH tied to Zweli.
