Health-e’s Maguire wins SAFTA

Health-e’s Maguire wins SAFTAHealth-e TV producer Bern Maguire getting her award at Sun City.

Health-e News is delighted to announce that our TV producer, Bern Maguire, has won a SA Film and Television Award (SAFTA) for the Best Current Affairs Programme for her investigation of Dr David Sello, a Potchefstroom doctor who was conducting illegal operations in his rooms.


“After being alerted to the tragic death of a toddler and the excruciating last moments of a Potchefstroom grandmother, I was determined to seek justice for the families where the Health Professions Council had failed. Little did I know I would find out so much more about the man dubbed Dr Death,” said Maguire.

After the programme was broadcast on eNCA’s Checkpoint, the doctor was suspended by the Health Professions Council of SA.

Checkpoint’s executive producer and anchor, Nkepile Mabuse, said: “It is most gratifying when those who work tirelessly behind the scenes also get to bask in the glory of achievement.”
