South African Nurse Killed Herself Over Dying Morgan Tsvangirai Photo

A South African Nurse who leaked a last photo of dying Morgan Tsvangirai alive On Hospital Death Bed last week is reported to have committed suicide, according to unverified reports.

The nurse pictured here simply identified as S Masawi allegedly released the last photo of the politician on his death bed at Wits Donald Gordon Medical Centre in Johannesburg South Africa on the social media last week.

The nurse at the centre of the Tsvangirai picture storm says the photo was taken with his consent.

The Wits Gordon Hospital in South Africa has since apologised for the picture of Tsvangirai which went viral on social media. Tertia Kruger, the spokesperson for the hospital said: “It is with regret that we note recent posts on social media showing a photograph of Mr Tsvangirai with a nursing staff member. We have investigated the matter and, according to the nursing staff member, the photograph was taken with the permission of Mr Tsvangirai.

We strongly condemn the appropriateness of the photograph and its subsequent distribution and confirm that disciplinary action has been taken against the nursing staff member.

Meanwhile, a Zimbabwean nurse registered with the South African Nursing Council (SANC) wrote to the body demanding action against the nurse. In a complaint to the SANC the nurse identified as S Masawi, demanded that the nurse be charged with misconduct.

Said Masawi:
May l bring to your attention the attached image showing one of your Nurses posing for a picture with a patient who is clearly on his final days. The patient is a well know Zimbabwean politician Mr Morgan Tsvangirai who passed away today (Wednesday) 14 Feb 2018 at the well-known hospital in Africa WDGMC (Wits Gordon, South African Hospital). I am a fellow registered nurse myself and, sadly, l find the actions of your staff member, a fellow professional colleague to be grossly inappropriate, unprofessional and in breach of the Nursing profession’s code of conduct. l would like to assume a breach in the local hospital policies as well.
