On Monday, The Star reported that Kalala was turned away from three hospitals - Tshwane District, Steve Biko and Charlotte Maxeke Academic - because of her asylum status.
Yesterday, Ramokgopa met the Kalala family at Charlotte Maxeke Academic Hospital, where baby Emmanuella has been admitted for medical examination and observation.
Kalala’s husband, Serge, said the MEC told them that she was going to investigate who was on duty at the hospitals that turned them away. She expressed her apologies.
“We belong to a global community that is expected to treat everybody who presents at our facilities and this is expected from any health system in the world,” she said.
