MEC of Health in Limpopo Province Dr Phophi Ramathuba has been trending on social media following her encounter with a Zimbabwean patient.
The patient was admitted at a hospital in Bela-Bela, in Limpopo Province.
Ramathuba said the foreigners were burdening the heath sector leading to the scramble for the little that is available for locals.
Her statements were being praised by many people across South Africa. However not everyone agreed with what Dr Ramathuba said.
Actress Pearl Thusi was not happy with the way that Ramathuba handled the situation. She took to her Twitter page to air her views. Below is what she posted.
