Lionel N Shunmugam started this petition to Dr Zweli Mkhize (Office of Minister of Health KZN) and

Mary Shunmugam walked into the Mahatma Ghandi Hospital in Durban on Thursday the 19th of November 2020 for a drip because of an upset stomach. She was admitted and tested for Covid 19 and found to be negative.

Later that day, all contact with her was withheld by hospital staff with the only feedback being that she was asleep and resting and no visitors were allowed due to Covid19 restrictions. By, Monday the 4th day, her family demanded feedback and access to her. The family were then informed by the doctor that Mary was critical with sepsis of the lungs and only a single visitor will be allowed the next day.

On the next day, which was Tuesday the 24th November, her husband was allowed to see her and noticed that Mary had a fresh wound on her forehead, was on a respirator with sensor strips on the both sides of her head and not conscious. When the doctor was asked to explain the open wound, he stated that he could not as there was no entry on her file except that when the patient was admitted, her file indicated that she had no wounds. Her husband then asked for permission to come accross again the next day with Marys 2 adult children to visit her. The doctor stated that it would only be granted if the husband called again it the morning before they came to visit.

On, Wednesday, the 25th of November, the husband called the hospital at 08h20 to inform them that he and the kids will be in the hospital at 08h30. He was then informed that Mary had passed away at 08h00 that morning of sepsis of the lung.

When the family tried to recover the body for burial, no doctor at the Ghandi hospital was prepared to sign the death certificate. The family then requested a post mortem and reported the matter to the SAPS.

The state post morterm found that Mary died of a brain hemmorage, due to multiple skull fracture, The management of Ghandi hospital has since then refused to give to the family a cause of death in writing.  Family correspondence to the Minister of Health who promised a written response is now over 2 months old with promises for feedback also still outstanding.

The family of Mary Shunmugam, deserve to know, who murdered her at the Ghandi Hospital, and hold the person or persons accountable for her death
