Limpopo Department of Health MEC Dr Phophi Ramathuba has applauded security personnel for arresting a criminal who was stealing car batteries in Philadelphia Hospital.
The security guard spotted the criminal who was busy stealing ambulance and other state vehicle batteries and as they charged at him, he attempted to jump the pallisade fence and unfortunately, he got arrested.
MEC Ramathuba says ambulances and all other state vehicles belong to the community and the community should be the first to protect these resources which will be there to save their lives the day of need. They hope the justice system can play its part and set an example so that no one can ever think of stealing government resources.
Furthermore Ramathuba condemns these barbaric acts and urge the community to report such criminal activities so that the perpetrators may be brought to book.
