I am horrified by the reported rape of a patient by a doctor at the Yusuf Dadoo Hospital in Krugersdorp on Monday this week, says DA Gauteng Shadow Health MEC.

A full investigation is needed into how this heinous act could have happened at a state hospital.

I commend the Gauteng Health Department for acting swiftly to stop the services of this sessional doctor so that no other patient is at risk from him.

Police should arrest him soon and ensure that this case gets to court as soon as possible.
