6901 Foreign babies born at Rahima Moosa Hospital
27 August 2015
A total of 6901 babies were born last year to foreign parents at the Rahima Moosa Mother and Child Hospital, amounting to about 26% of all the 26 467 babies born there in 2014.
This is revealed by Gauteng Health MEC Qedani Mahlangu in a written reply to my questions in the Gauteng Legislature.
Last week, Mahlangu claimed that 90% of patients were foreigners.
She said this after a shocking incident where a Zimbabwean mother was ignored by nurses at Rahima Moosa when she screamed for assistance, and subsequently lost her premature baby.
