Life Esidimeni inquest resumes

The Life Esidimeni inquest resumes today after it was postponed almost two weeks ago. The matter was adjourned as potentially implicated parties did not have enough time to brief their legal representatives. Former Life Esidimeni Managing Director Dr Basuku Mkhatshwa will be cross-examined today.

The inquest is seeking to uncover how 144 mental health patients died after they were transferred from Life Esidimeni facilities in Gauteng to NGOs that were not fully equipped to cater to their daily needs.

For the latest we spoke to our reporter Riante Padayachee.
