JOHANNESBURG – The Gauteng Health Department has been ordered to pay all the medical costs of a boy left disabled thanks to negligent hospital staff.

Staff at Johannesburg’s Tembisa Hospital failed to perform an emergency caesarean on Ntsako Mathebula’s mother in 2010.

Ntsako now has cerebral palsy, epilepsy and suffers from brain damage.

eNCA reporter Daniella van Heerden filed this report. Watch the full story in the gallery above.
