” It is indeed a day of jubilation and excitement as we turn the sod for new Health facilities to be built in Colesberg that will improve the quality of the Health of all our people In this area. The new facilities will provide an opportunity for a new platform for good clinical interventions and therefore better quality health care for our people. It will take time for us to turn the tide of many decades of oppression and subjugation. But, it will be through efforts such as these where we consciously, deliberately and programmatically reconstruct our society for a better quality of live. We must remember that this hard fought freedom came at a heavy price of those who sacrificed their lives for us to be free.”

To make sure that patients do not travel long distances to De Aar and Kimberley for In emergencies our government made an agreement with Universal hospital of Bloemfontein, so that patients from Colesberg can be admitted there, which is nearer for their families to visit and also cheaper. Ladies and Gentlemen, more than R17.5 million will be spent to build the hospital and +-R1 million for the clinics,” he concluded.
