I am being spied on – Qedani Mahlangu

JOHANNESBURG – Former Gauteng Health MEC Qedani Mahlangu she feels “harassed” after a drone hovered above her house on Tuesday.

Mahlangu is testifying at the Life Esidimeni hearings underway in Johannesburg, which aims to give closure to families who lost loved ones when 1700 patients were moved from Esidimeni psychiatric homes into ill-equipped NGOs. At least 143 mentally ill patients died.

She began the second day of her testimony saying that she was met by crime intelligence operatives on her arrival at the airport from England last week.

“I was welcomed by police at the airport who told me they were from crime intelligence.

“In my house, while I was perusing documents, I noted a drone hovering above my home.

“I do not know why I am being harassed.

“I came here voluntarily. I am committed to work with government to find closure.

“I thought it was important to alert you to developments around me.”

She also stated that crime intelligence staff that met her at the airport just told her they were sent “by their bosses.” She also said they did not tell her the reason they were there and she did not know how they knew she was on that flight.

Responding to her, Judge Moseneke assured her of his concern. The state attorney’s office has been requested to make contact with the police to ascertain what is occurring.
