South Africans were left infuriated after photos went viral, which showed the horrifying conditions of a local hospital.
Last week, photos were shared on social media about the alleged poor conditions of the Philadelphia Hospital in Dennilton, Mpumalanga.
"Philadelphia Hospital in Dennilton Mpumalanga.I was born in this Hospital and it pains me to see this.Our only sin was being born poor, unable to afford dignity.@CyrilRamaphosa @GovernmentZA @DDMabuza @MbalulaFikile @HealthZA," the caption read.
Briefly.co.za gathered the photos sparked quite the reaction on Twitter, so we decided to take a look at some of the most honest responses.
Social media user @amaivaaaron wrote, "Looks like a prison. What on earth is this health minister doing?"
Miliswa Pakela, who goes by the Twitter handle @miliswap, commented: "SA taxes are amongst the highest in the world and THIS is what we have to show for it!! Bailing out SOEs instead of purchasing beds for hospitals.... yerrr!!! Emalahleni provincial battles with water! Imagine.... amanzi. Rhaaaa."
Sandra Reardon, @ReardonSandra, added: "#StateFailure is increasing across almost all sectors. If SA is to have a chance of success, we need a governing party that does its job properly. Every day the ANC remains in office, Mzansi’s children & our nation are robbed of a decent chance to succeed. #VoteWisely."
