MPUMALANGA PROVINCIAL GOVERNMENT IS HIDING COVID-19 INFORMATION

By: Jane Sithole MPL - DA Mpumalanga Spokesperson on HealtH


The Democratic Alliance (DA) calls on Mpumalanga Premier, Refilwe Mtshweni-Tsipane to address members of the Legislature on what is going on in the Province regarding Covid-19.


Mpumalanga Health MEC, Sasekani Manzini and the Premier only updated members of the Legislature once regarding what is happening in Mpumalanga since the beginning of the lockdown period.


There was only one meeting were the Premier addressed members of the Legislature which was on the 4th of June.


MPLs are only sent text messages such as this one: "Hon Members, Kindly be informed that the Covid-19 briefing meeting which was scheduled for tomorrow, 21 May has been canceled.We apologise for the inconvenience that we may have caused."


More meetings where the Premier and the MEC were to address members of the Legislature were cancelled. To this day not a single meeting is scheduled to take members of the Legislature in confidence and bring them up to date regarding what's going on in Mpumalanga regarding Covid-19.


The meetings of 11 and 18 June were also cancelled. No Covid-19 meetings are scheduled for July or August. The list of cancelled meetings is endless and no explanation is given for the cancellation of the meetings.


What is the Mpumalanga Provincial Government and Health Department hiding? They made sure that they don't include a single member of any of the political parties represented in the Legislature on the Covid-19 Provincial Command Council. 

They have become a law unto themselves and are evading responsibility.


How come that in almost four months of the lockdown, the Premier and the MEC are cancelling all meetings which are meant to update us on Covid-19 in the Province? What are they hiding?


Mpumalanga residents are subjected to a government that is operating secretly and that refuses to take responsibility.


The only responsibility that they have taken is that of finding land to dig graves and to date, they have failed to even construct a single field hospital in the province.
