NEHAWU members thrashed the Maternity Wards and kitchen of Pietersburg Hospital while they were illegally picketing at the hospital.
Nurses who were assisting women to give birth had to run for cover fearing the picketers who were on a destructive mode. Patient food for tonight scattered all over the place. They are demanding that the department top up the R43 million that it has payed workers as performance bonuses.
Why must patients suffer?
