Thabo Mbeki - Cholera

Former President Thabo Mbeki has expressed his concerns about the cholera outbreak in Hamaanskraal, describing it as evidence of worsening governance. As South Africans continue to seek answers regarding the disease outbreak, the death toll has risen to 23 in Gauteng and one in Free State as reported by Eyewitness News.

Speaking to Eyewitness News in Conakry, Guinea, Mbeki highlighted various issues in South Africa that indicate a decline in governance quality. He emphasised that the country has been facing a serious crisis for some time. Mbeki further suggested that citizens might need to resort to a revolt to gain the attention of national leaders.

According to Mbeki, the recent vandalism of electric pylons and the current cholera outbreak in Tshwane are indicators of a significant deterioration in governance. He urged South Africans to find ways to exert pressure on their leaders, stating that a government system failing to serve the people’s interests could be challenged by the masses.

The source of the cholera outbreak in Hammanskraal remains unknown at this time.
