JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng Premier David Makhura said he cannot comment on details coming out of the Life Esidimeni arbitration hearings.

A high-level team tasked with fixing Gauteng's ailing health system was announced on Sunday.

The provincial health department has been rocked by a series of scandals.

Most notorious of these is the Life Esidemeni transfer project, which led to the deaths of 143 mentally ill patients.

Makhura told a media briefing he will comment on the arbitration hearings at a later stage.

“There are things that we are observing there which we can’t talk about. We will talk about those things at the end of the process.”
