Johannesburg Emergency Services Did Not Arrive To Help Mandoza
The issue of the turnaround time for emergency services has again come under the spotlight. It’s now emerged that Kwaito star Mandoza waited three hours for an ambulance before his family decided to take him to the hospital. His manager Kevin Ntaopane says by the time he arrived at the Tshabalala home in Pimville Soweto the family had been waiting for hours already.
This morning Johannesburg emergency services’ Robert Mulaudzi told 180 with Bob that they are investigating the claims and came short of admitting that there is an ambulance availability issue in the city saying ” I think that we will be misleading people if we say we have enough ambulances to cater for everyone.”
Mduduzi Tshabalala succumbed to cancer on Sunday afternoon. Yesterday his family and friends announced that his memorial service will take place tomorrow – Wednesday, at the Ellispark precinct at noon.
Although details of his funeral service are yet to be confirmed, Mandoza will be laid to rest on Saturday.
Mandoza shot to fame with his kwaito Chiskop in the 90’s , but what really set him apart was his solo career that produced hits like Nkalakatha, Godoba, 50/50 and many others. Family and friends yesterday spoke of his love for his children and wife and that he will be sorely missed.
