SECTION27’s “Our Week Ahead” is an attempt to share with the public, the media and our partners some of our plans and activities for the week – we hope it will give you a glimpse into our world and encourage you to join us on our journey.
This week, we pay respect to South African Music Icon Mduduzi “Mandoza” Tshabalala who passed away yesterday after battling cancer. Mandoza’s music united South Africans, and allowed us all to be proud of our country. We were reminded that: “Indoda’ingawa namhlanje, Kusasa iphindi’vuke”. (A man may fall today, but he will rise again tomorrow) We have lost a legend, but we were so fortunate to have lived in his time. Hambe Kahle Nkalakatha!
SECTION27 Journalist Nomatter Ndebele is joining the Treatment Action Campaign in the Free State to do research on the current health crises in various Health Facilities in the province. Last week the TAC and S27 received reports that nurses had gone on strike, leaving hundreds of patients without medical attention. The TAC has called on President Jacob Zuma to intervene.
