Breakfast Show host Bongani Bingwa reacts to Aaron Motsoaledi's claim that there is no crisis in the health sector.

Breakfast Show host Bongani Bingwa says he hopes minister of health, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi is not waiting for an emergency in the health sector in orderto agree that there is a crisis.

But a crisis means calamity, emergency, disaster, cataclysm. It often takes a long time to arrive, months, years, maybe even decades.

Bongani Bingwa, Breakfast Show host

But more often than not we call it those names because when it does arrive, it feels sudden and the effect is that of an avalanche, the falling of dominoes.

We should sincerely hope the minister is not waiting for that to agree about the extent of the crisis.
