After spending almost five frustrating years working for government as a doctor, Francistown native Dr Abelang Mogorosi pulled the plug on his career following the historic 2011 Public Service strike.
The softly spoken medical man spent four years at Nyangagbwe Referral Hospital and six months at Sekgoma Memorial Hospital in Serowe tending to the sick.
Demoralised by low wages and an overwhelming, increasingly draining workload, Mogorosi resigned just six months before he was eligible for gratuity.
It was the best decision of his life.
Today he runs the budding Satellite Private Clinic, located at Sunshine Plaza, and has slowly asserted himself as one of the best, most trusted doctors in the second city.
In this interview the young doctor – who coyly gives his age as ‘under 40’ – fields questions from Voice Reporter Kabelo Dipholo and sheds more light on the cut-throat healthcare industry.
Q. Kindly share a little bit about yourself with our readers. Who is Dr Mogorosi?
