It’s not the first time Motsoaledi had to go to the medical facility; in 2015, he was treated at the Steve Biko Academic Hospital for pneumonia. Two years before, Motsoaledi was admitted to Steve Biko Academic Hospital for a planned surgical procedure. At the time, the Economic Freedom Fighters praised the former health minister for opting for a State hospital over a private facility. “The EFF approves because one of our fundamental principles and policy positions is that all elected public representatives should use public services and institutions,” the EFF said in a statement at the time.
