    Grin South Africa: Doctor Ducks Racist Wrath at Health Clinic

    South Africa: Doctor ducks racist wrath at health clinic

    A black doctor was forced to lock himself inside a consulting room after a woman threw a rubbish bin at him and called him a f****g k****r at the Hanover Park day hospital.

    Confirming the weekend incident, the provincial health department condemned racism "in all its forms", and said it was investigating the circumstances.

    The doctor, who could not be reached for comment by the Cape Argus on Tuesday, had apparently offered to help the woman and her child, when she demanded the child be given painkillers about 4pm on Saturday.

    She allegedly "ordered" the doctor to give her the tablets, telling him not to ask questions.

    When the doctor answered that as a doctor he "must ask questions", she apparently got extremely angry and started hurling racial insults at him. She then grabbed a rubbish bin and threw it at him.

    When security guards were called, the woman also slapped one of the guards, witnesses said.

    This was followed by a scuffle between the two. The doctor had meanwhile locked himself in a consulting room.

    A member of the Hanover Park Health Committee, who asked not to be named, said the woman then called the police and accused the security guard of assaulting her.

    The doctor has not laid a charge with the police.

    The committee member said the watchdog body was "very disturbed" about the incident.

    She said the incident would portray the community in a very poor light.

    "Our community is already struggling - health workers don't want to work here because of gang activity and other social ills.

    "The racial abuse could make things worse for us and we demand those found to be at fault should be brought to book," she said.

    Health department spokesperson Faiza Steyn confirmed the incident, and said it was being investigated.

    "The department confirms that this incident has indeed occurred and strongly condemns racism in all its forms," she said, adding that the woman had been escorted from the building by a security guard on duty, and the doctor had completed an incident report.

    She said the doctor would receive counselling in terms of the department's Employee Assistance Programme.

    It is important to mention that Hanover Park is a coloured area in Cape Town and that the woman concerned is most probably a Cape Coloured. These people are a race of their own and are mostly the decendants of Malay servants from the 17 th centuary. Many of them, however, do have some white and/or black blood also. They speak a slang Afrikaans and are known for their wit and love for wine! One of the party leaders - the United Democrats' Patricia de Lill - is one of these people.
