The tragic and unexpected death of Memory Beukes and her baby at the Katutura State Hospital last week Wednesday once again highlights the pitiable state of Namibia’s public health sector. Three babies and two mothers have died in questionable circumstances at the Windhoek Central and Katutura State hospitals over the past six weeks.
Twenty-three year old Memory Beukes’ and her baby died unexpectedly in the late hours of Tuesday 8 May as a consequence of a complicated delivery. The doctor on duty purportedly refused to perform a caesarian section, despite repeated requests from the attending nurses. Beukes arrived at the Katutura State Hospital at 13h00 complaining of birth pains, but was sent back home after consulting a doctor who informed her that she and her baby were doing fine. The expectant woman was advised to return to hospital within two hours for a follow up.
