Twenty years after South Africans jubilantly swept apartheid aside, Johannesburg's Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital, like many of the country's post-apartheid institutions, has failed to live up to the dream. Away from the country's high-profile political scandals, a more pernicious institutional crisis is ravaging the "Rainbow Nation".
Small municipalities and large ministries are being eaten away by corruption, mismanagement and the enormity of serving all of the country's 51 million citizens, not just an elite few.
The problems are "systemic" and require a complete "overhaul" according to Phophi Ramathuba of the country's doctors association, but they are not limited to the health sector. Education failure In Limpopo 5 children had no textbooks for more than six months because the government stuffed-up a delivery contract.

Patients who need to be treated with Gemzar chemotherapy have been told that it is not available as the supplier has not been paid.
