healthcareEWN reports that staff at the Alexandra Community Health Centre say that although they fear for their safety after a fatal stabbing at the facility, they will continue serving the community as best they can.  

Police are investigating a brazen attack at the facility in which an unknown group of armed men stormed the facility and attacked a patient in full view of other patients and staff.  The man had sought assistance from the hospital after being attacked outside.  He was killed while being attended to by a nurse.  Facility manager Ellen Masupa said:  “Whatever that has happened won’t be easily removed in the minds of those who witnessed it or whoever can think about what happened.”  Police have appealed to community members for some help in finding the culprits.
