Controversial Norton legislator Temba Mliswa has defended Limpopo MEC Dr Phopha Ramathuba saying her remarks to a sick Zimbabwean patient are not xenophobic but just the truth.
Posting on Twitter Thursday morning, Mliswa said Ramathuba simple gave a clear message about the status of South African health system and how illegal migrants from Zimbabwe are weighing it down.
“I respect this lady. She simply gave a very clear message about the status of their health system and how we are weighing it down. Nothing wrong, just that we don’t want the truth. Now are angry over other people’s resources. There is no xenophobia there,” said Mliswa.
