In what looks like an act of revenge, the whistleblower who exposed Princess Marina Hospital’s negligence last week, has been charged with common nuisance by the police.

Gontle Kwelo was charged on Friday after he was locked up at the Central Police for more than two hours at the behest of the hospital. The hospital management reported him to the police for allegedly recording a verbal exchange he had with the nurses in the latest episode of the saga. The youthful Kwelo says when he went to the hospital to check on his sick uncle, the nurses barred him from leaving the ward after hurling insults at him. He said the nurses closed the door as he was walking out and accused him of tarnishing their name.

Kwelo told The Monitor that he tried to record the nurses as they insulted him, but they hid their faces. He said he was surprised when all the nurses in the ward prevented him from leaving and the security guards hand-cuffed him and took him to management offices. The managers demanded that he should delete whatever he may have recorded at the hospital.
