Life Esidimeni: All deaths to be approached as unnatural till proven otherwise
It's day 15 of the Life Esidimeni hearings into the deaths of 141 people who died after they were moved to unlicensed NGOs.
EWN reporter Masego Rahlaga says the former chairperson of the Gauteng mental health review board Dumazile Masondo was questioned on how the Esidimeni tragedy could have happened on her watch.
Masondo and the entire board was suspended by Gauteng Health MEC Gwen Ramokgopa in March 2017.
