Health Ombudsman Malegapuru Makgoba is presenting his updated report at the Life Esidimeni Arbitration hearings in Parktown, Johannesburg.

Makgoba gave a figure of 94 in February when he released his report into the deaths of the patients following their transfer to unlicensed NGOs.

As the first witness to testify when the hearings got underway last month, he raised the figure to 118.
