African leaders should be ashamed for seeking medical treatment abroad- S.A Health Minister, Aaron Motsoaledi

South African  Minister of Health, Aaron Motsoaledi criticised African leaders for seeking medical treatment abroad while speaking in Zimbabwe at a World Health Organization (WHO) meeting of
African health ministers. Mr. Motsoaledi said Africa is the only continent where the leaders travel abroad for health reasons.

“I have said this before and I will say it again, we are the only continent that has its leaders seeking medical services outside the continent, outside our territory. We must be ashamed of that. This is called health tourism. We must promote our own.” 

In the past year, five African Presidents have
gone overseas for medical treatment, the list includes Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari, Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe, Benin’s President Patrice Talon, Angola’s President Jose Eduardo dos Santos and Algeria’s President Abdelaziz Bouteflika.
