Posting on social media, the hospital in Zimbabwe requested community members who know who the woman is to contact it.

“Announcement. Arundel Hospital will settle all outstanding bills for this woman. Do you know who she is? Please contact us …” the hospital posted on Twitter.

“At Arundel Hospital we have an ongoing philanthropic practice where we provide free medical assistance to individuals from all walks of life. We take pride in our efforts, in collaboration with the government of Zimbabwe, to provide optimum health care to all.”

There has been a barrage of mixed reactions to the Limpopo MEC’s outburst during his interaction with an undocumented Zimbabwean national.

In the video, the patient tells the MEC that she speaks Shona, the dominant language in Zimbabwe. Ramathuba replies: “You speak Shona? And how do you end up being in Bela-Bela when you are supposed to be with Mnangagwa? You know he doesn’t give me money to operate (on) you guys? And I am operating (on) you with my limited budget.”
