South Africa’s main opposition party, alongside a number of labour and business groups, have said they will take legal action against a bill aimed at providing universal health coverage.

Recall that South African President Cyril Ramaphosa was due to sign the contentious proposal into law on Wednesday.

The National Health Insurance (NHI) bill seeks to give South Africans “of all races, rich or poor and legal long-term residents” access to quality healthcare. Its implementation would cost billions of dollars.

On Tuesday, the Democratic Alliance (DA) party leader said his party would challenge the law “all the way to the Constitutional Court”.
