Mpumalanga deploys armed guards at all state hospitals


AFTER  a spate of robberies lately, armed guards will in future secure not only provincial hospitals in Mpumalanga, but all public health care centres as far as Bethal and Evander.

A doctor at Mapulaneng Hospital in Bushbuckridge just missed being killed during a robbery at a staff residence not long ago. After a proper security analysis earlier this month, the provincial government gave the go ahead that safety measures and armed guards will be implemented and deployed with immediate effect.
