JOHANNESBURG - Former Gauteng Health MEC Qedani Mahlangu has been summoned to testify at the Esidimeni arbitration hearings.
She’ll be subpoenaed to appear by December, along with suspended mental health director, Makgabo Manamela and head of department Tiego Selebano.
The Health Ombudsman found Manamela and Selebano to be grossly negligent.
Mahlangu claimed she was studying at the London School of Economics.
But the institution has confirmed she's not a registered student.
A total of 141 mentally ill patients died after the department decided to move them to several ill-equipped NGOs.
