The Minister of Employment and Labour, Mr Thembelani ‘Thulas’ Nxesi (MP), was admitted to hospital last night due to Covid-19 related illness.

“Minister Nxesi is the second member of Cabinet to be admitted to hospital after Minister Gwede Mantashe. We wish both Minister Nxesi and Minister Mantashe well and a speedy recovery,” said government in a statement.

The Minister tested positive for the coronavirus almost a week ago and has, until last night, been in self-quarantine at home.

His admission to hospital comes on the advice of his medical doctors, in order for him to have access to better medical attention and proper monitoring.
