Bio-ethics professor Ames Dhai has criticised MEC Qedani Mahlangu's testimony at the Life Esidimeni hearings and has accused Mahlangu of trying to deny her responsibility in the deaths of 143 patients transferred to unlicensed non-governmental organisations.
Dhai says its clear former Mahlangu did not understand what was in the best interest of the psychiatric patients.
She doesn't need a medical degree to actually know that. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to understand that.— Ames Dhai, Director, Steve Biko Centre for Bio-ethics, Wits University
For me, she lacks absolutely any form of ethics, both personal and professional. Professionalism at that level is held in such a high regard, she took an oath when she was sworn into her position.— Ames Dhai, Director, Steve Biko Centre for Bio-ethics, Wits University
In terms of our Cconstitution there are certain fundamental rights, the right to access to health care but the right to dignity and the right to health, and she obviously infringed all of this.— Ames Dhai, Director, Steve Biko Centre for Bio-ethics, Wits University
