Zimbabwean Woman Dies "After Being Neglected" At A South African Hospital

Zimbabwean Woman Dies

A Zimbabwean woman is said to have died at Krugersdorp hospital due to bleeding after giving birth allegedly after being neglected by health caregivers at the institutions.

The Star reports that Luyanda Moyo, 21, a Zimbabwean immigrant who visited South African medical centres to give birth but was allegedly met with poor treatment and lack of attention because of her nationality.

Moyo gave birth at the Yusuf Dadoo hospital in Krugersdorp to a baby weighing 4kg.

Despite complaining of pain and excessive bleeding, she alleged that the medical staff in the maternity ward did not pay attention to her.

Luyanda’s uncle, Gibson Tshuma, told “The Star” that she was so neglected to the point of being the last patient in the ward.

Nurses found Luyanda dead hours after giving birth, according to The Star.

Her family is calling for an investigation into her death.

Tshuma said the family was concerned that the statements uttered by Limpopo Health MEC, Phophi Rmathuba, could have caused the staff at the hospital to have a negative attitude towards illegal Zimbabweans seeking medical attention in parts of South Africa.

Tshuma said when they found Luyanda’s body in the hospital her clothes were covered in blood.

The hospital failed to explain what happened to Luyanda. Tshuma said:

Based on the messages on her cellphone she was overdue and she was given an inducing pill even though they acknowledged that the baby was too big for her to deliver naturally.

We are demanding answers as to what happened, we are not getting clear answers.

They induced her even when they had observed an operation was necessary and then she was ignored when she was bleeding to death.

In some voice notes that Luyanda shared with her mother before she died, she said:

It’s so painful… they haven’t checked on me, I think they will come today. 

Luyanda’s baby boy survived and is with his grandmother but the family said it was still left with a million questions concerning how Luyanda died.

The family is preparing for Luyanda’s body to be transported back to Zimbabwe where her funeral will take place.

Zimbabwe’s healthcare system collapsed decades ago and most public health institutions do not have even the basics while the cost of medication in private ones is beyond the reach of the common man.

Whan an Embarrassment for Zimbabwe's health sector. If you are a Zimbabwean and you still hope the country will be solved by the current bstae of politics , you are a psycho. Something unique is required to solve this. One of it is to convince zanu key figures to kill one another especially big wings

Sad sad sad may her soul resting eternal peace.

That said I pray for Zimbabweans to stop worshipping politicians and start using them for what they should, they are servants not masters of the people. People should understand the power of the collective over individualism. United we can make this country work and provide for us all but first stop worshipping politicians

South Africans I warn you, your castle is trembling and is about to fall. A more vindictive situation will visit your country in few years to come. You're repeating the same mistake when Zimbabwe was a war against the white settlers, but Zimbabwe never gave you a cold shoulder, instead, it helped South Africa to end Apertheid

Am sorry hangu to the deceased family but one day our beloved Zimbabwe will be ok like fellow Countries such as Dubai, chigago let's pray brothers and sisters because where we are going that's where we coming from. One day our dear Zimbabwe will be blessed with Economical growth with good sanitisation, health centers where fellow Zimbabweans will adhere to seek held in Hospitals such as Parirenyetwa, Impilo etc. Let's stay humble and win the #2023 Elections with honor rather than fraud.

Whatever iltreatment Zimbabweans are getting in South Africa rests squarely on the shoulders of the ZANU PF government.

The so called second administration destroyed our Healthcare system by mispostings at the top levels. How can a person who has no medical training even at Red Cross level posted to be in charge of the Ministry of Health and Childcare ?

A responsible government can not post a man with the sole mandate to silence striking doctors and nurses. It is being irresponsible to post a man with full instructions to drive doctors and nurses out of the country.
