The minister of health in Kwazulu Natal; Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu; applauded the suspension of the securty guards; she expressed concern about the incident shown in the video.

"It is very worrying that the person who recorded the video; decided to post it on social networks; rather than show it to hospital management." Said Simelane-Zulu.

If those who recorded it; followed the correct channels; the patient would not have continued to be abused and suffer in that manner." She said.

"We heard that it was one of our nurses who recorded the video. We are busy investigating and have asked the hospital management to also do an internal investigation." She said.

She continued to say; the department; asked the company contracted to provide security to the hospital; to fire their security guards with immediate effect.

The video which is on everyone's lips on social media; left many people annoyed. Others expressed their anger; saying the security guards should be arrested.
