Tuesday saw the one year anniversary of the Life Esidimeni hearings and one thing remains clear- Mzansi wants answers. South Africans, especially the families of the victims, want to know why no arrests have been made.
19 March marked a year since the Life Esidimeni Arbitration hearings concluded and Mzansi wants to know why no arrests have been made.
Briefly.co.za recently reported that 144 psychiatric patients had passed away after being moved away from Life Esidimeni centers and into unlicensed NGOs.
The families of victims have demanded accountability from the Gauteng Health Department but the National Prosecuting Authority has yet to provide any updates.
Azwianewi Mulangaphuma took to Facebook to comment on the situation, saying that:
"We used to say no one is above the law in SA. But it doesn't work in our lovely country. They should have already arrested our former president. These commissions are taking long and they are buying time and misusing our tax money. All who are implicated must have a day to answer in court."
Joan Ruiters agreed, questioning the integrity of those responsible for the incident:
"They were accused of murder but still sitting in parliament how do you live with yourselves?"
Bulelani Gcobo commented that this was an unfortunate sign of the times, blaming the ruling party for the state of affairs in South Africa:
"That's how useless the systems of this country are under the ANC government."
