SA officials wait in bated breath for signing of NHI bill

Date: May 15, 2024

The stage is set for the official signing, into law, of the National Health Insurance (NHI) bill by South Africa’s President, Cyril Ramaphosa, at the Union Buildings in Pretoria.

Government officials and distinguished guests have settled as they await the official signing of the bill.

The bill is facing widespread objection with the opposition parties and medical unions vowing to take legal action against the bill.

Yesterday, the opposition Democratic Alliance party said the signing into law of the bill “will nationalise healthcare into a State-Owned Entity that will be looted.”

Meanwhile, the President has defended the bill, saying that his government was not reckless and that the introduction of the NHI would not be done in a destructive manner.
