Chairperson of the SA Medical Association, Dr Angelique Coetzee, says although they respect Mkhize’s decision, the minister should not exclude scientific input.
“We should not disregard the scientific input of the scientists. It’s his prerogative what he wants to do, I would have just done it a bit differently because there is still unfinished reports that need to go in. We never know what the politics behind everything is and maybe the minister will get a committee that is in favour and say more things that are appreciated at government level.
I think if you want to have a good committee you need to get a committee that has got very strong views and not afraid to criticise.”
