JOHANNESBURG - Members of the Gauteng Provincial Legislature are set to debate a motion of no confidence against Premier David Makhura.

It was tabled by the DA following the deaths of more than 100 psychiatric patients who had been moved from Life Esidimeni to unlicensed NGOs around the province.

Earlier this month, health ombudsman Malegapuru Makgoba reported that most of the patients had died of starvation and other causes not related to their condition.

The DA said it has evidence that Makhura was made aware of the decision to transfer the patients prior to their movements. 

Makhura, however, insists that he knew nothing.
