Pretoria - The recent case of a harrowing video showing Martha Marais, 76, chained underneath a Mamelodi Hospital bench has raised important questions about the challenges facing hospitals.
South African Human Rights Commission Gauteng manager Buang Jones, along with other officials conducted a walk-about, engaging with patients and staff.
Together with hospital officials, they snaked around the overcrowded hospital.
Jones also went to the bench where Marais was chained and tried to make sense of it.
"I get shivers just looking at the benches. But let’s not delve too much into it. We will settle it legally,” he told the staff.
