Former Democratic Alliance (DA) leader and South African citizen Mmusi Maimane has claimed on Twitter (@MmusiMaimane) that "Salutations to the morning, South Africans! Our healthcare system is breaking down. Conditions are deteriorating, doctors and nurses are departing, and Dr. Mostoaledi has left a mess. The health industry must be protected, as its demise would be detrimental to society as a whole. Let's put our differences aside and work together to bring South Africa back from the brink.

Mmusi Maimane is opposed to the exodus of foreign workers from one particular industry in South Africa, the healthcare sector, where the vast majority of workers are not citizens but are instead foreign nationals.
He claims the minister of home affairs is to blame, saying that the failure of his department was due to the minister's incompetence. Minister Cele and Minister Motsoaledi of South Africa requested a list of companies that employ illegal foreign immigrants from South Africa's Dudula the previous two days.
He fears for the collapse of South Africa's health care sector if too many foreigners leave, thus the former leader of the DA has said that the country should instead preserve its diversity and work together to rebuild.
Some South Africans responded to his tweet by insisting they must immediately depart "There are plenty of skilled medical professionals out of work who are ready to fill such positions.
The following are the responses from SANS members who have seen the Tweets:
