DA calls for complete revocation of Dr Nandipha Magudumana’s licence to practice

The Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) recently revealed that Dr Nandipha Magudumana’s licence to practice was suspended due to her failure to pay annual fees.

However, this issue pales in comparison to the more concerning allegations that she helped convicted rapist and murderer Thabo Bester, escape from prison and even stole bodies from the mortuary.

Therefore, the Democratic Alliance is calling for the Health Professions Council to investigate the suitability of her licence in light of recent revelations with the intention to revoke it. This action must be taken to demonstrate that no one is above the law and to ensure the safety and well-being of patients who may come into contact with her in the future.

We will be writing to the Minister of Health, Dr Joe Phaala, to address this issue.
