"Please, we need more surgeons and researchers in South Africa , we tired of family doctors who give us Panados when we sick.. We need doctors who will help us when another pandemic strikes. Think about it but for now congratulations hey, seven years is no joke... Congratulations Drs."
"Congratulations to all of you doctors! You made your families, friends and neighbours very proud. Now it's time to make the rest of the country proud! I pray to God that each of you become employed and start earning and making money. Congratulations ladies and gentlemen."
"We need you in this country. Quality doctors in township clinics, rural clinics, black hospitals and not just private practice and private hospitals. Or worse, overseas. Being a doctor is a calling and not a ticket to riches. The riches will be our gratitude in the lives u save."
