Western Cape Attacks

Threat to withdraw emergency services over attacks in Western Cape

The Health and Other Services Personnel Trade Union of South Africa (Hospersa) is demanding that an emergency plan be set up to help protect its members in the Western Cape from ongoing attacks, warning that it could withdraw its services.

This follows the death of an 8-year-old boy who was being transported to Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital after the ambulance he was in was attacked and robbed by three men on the N2 highway in Cape Town.

The trade union said on Thursday it will write to Health Minister Dr Aaron Motsoaledi to inform him of its intention to withdraw the services of its members in the Western Cape should the safety of their members not be dealt with.
