    Swazis with HIV and cancer from northern Hhohho are allegedly flooding a South African hospital seeking medical attention.

    This supposedly because of the alleged collapse of the Swazi health care system according to a report published in the August 13 edition of Drum magazine. Staff from Shongwe Hospital in Nkomazi, South Africa are said to be burdened by the influx from northern Hhohho.
