The South African Human Rights Commission (SAHRC) wants the Gauteng health department to ensure TikTok sensation and fake medical doctor Matthew Lani gets access to antiretrovirals (ARVs).
In a letter seen by News24, the SAHRC threatened the department with legal action after Lani lodged a complaint that he was denied access to Hillbrow Clinic, Windsor Clinic and twice at Helen Joseph Hospital.
Lani claimed a poster bearing his face was circulated in October, barring him from accessing any health facilities.
