KwaZulu-Natal Health MEC Nomagugu Simelane-Zulu said: “As the department we visited the hospital to find out what happened first-hand, and to speak to the people responsible for the management of the hospital.”
The MEC visited the hospital on Tuesday. After speaking to its management, it was decided to redeploy Subban to St Aidan’s Hospital in Greyville.
He will be replaced by Nqobile Mkhwanazi, the current chief executive of Queen Nandi Regional Hospital.
The department said Mkhwanazi would be at the post indefinitely, until they were satisfied with the running of the hospital.
