Cuba continues to earn millions of dollars from its slave doctors in South Africa

Jack Bloom, an opposition politician in South Africa and a member of the Democratic Alliance party, denounced that the Ministry of Health in Gauteng province spent nearly two million dollars on doctors from the Cuban communist regime in 2021 and still employs 14 doctors from the island that cost between 5,000 and 6,000 dollars a month, each. Naturally, over eighty percent of that salary goes straight into the pockets of Castro, Inc.

Gauteng is the smallest, but most urbanized province in all of South Africa, and is home to one quarter of the nation’s population.

The South African government remains steadfastly committed to honoring its human trafficking deal with Castro, Inc., claiming that the “excellence” of the Cuban slave doctors contributes greatly to the enhancement of medical care in their country.

By the way, the party in power in South Africa — Nelson Mandela’s African National Congress — has also refused to condemn Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Surprise!

The Gauteng Health Department spent R30.3 million on Cuban doctors last year, and still employs 14 Cuban doctors who earn between R78 000 and R91 000 a month.

This is revealed by Gauteng Health MEC Nomathemba Mokgethi in a written reply to my questions in the Gauteng Legislature.

According to Mokgethi, the 14 Cuban doctors are at Primary Health Care facilities. She says they are employed:“because of a government-to-government agreement entered into by South Africa in 1996. The Cuban National Doctors also serve as mentors and coaches for the doctors who are placed at Primary Health Care facilities especially the South African doctors trained in Cuba.”

There were originally 28 Cuban doctors who were hired in May 2020 for a one-year contract which expired in May last year, and it is disappointing that the department still employs 14 of them while local doctors are unemployed.

I doubt whether they add expertise that is not available locally. Some of them do not speak English well and they are not familiar with local health conditions.

Government money should be spent on South Africans rather than wasted on Cuban doctors and expensive Cuban medical training which is being probed for suspected corruption.

This misplaced loyalty to the despotic Cuban government is as immoral as the ANC’s inability to condemn the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

  1. Well, the late bearded bastard didn’t cultivate the Mandela-South Africa connection because he cared about either. He did, however, care about what he could get out of that connection, which is evidently still paying dividends. Still, it’s not his fault so many people are so easily taken in by opportunistic BS.
