A patient of Potchefstroom has been battling with an illness commonly known as ‘elephantiasis’ for eight years. She has been visiting Potchefstroom hospital but has been given the wrong treatment.

Instead of treating the specific disease, the hospital allegedly only paid attention to her hypertension which Ms Diana Moremogolo is also suffering from.

‘While I have been struggling for eight years with this disease, I have only been given pain killers at the hospital,” she said.
