Hopewell had this to say :
How do you feel now knowing that Clive Chigubu died because the cancer machines at Mpilo are not working?
Is this your version of patriotism of letting citizens die because you are LOOTING public funds?
How many more have to die before you act?
You are SHAMELESS! https://t.co/Pt0WS2TMQ5
