Cape Town - Public Works Minister Gwen Mahlangu-Nkabinde on Friday rejected media claims that a R362m hospital is to be constructed at the Bryntirion Estate in Pretoria.

In fact, the first aid centre - not a hospital - under consideration was a project of the public works department, her office said.

It would be procured from the public works infrastructure budget and not from the presidency or the health department's budgets, "as reported in certain quarters".

"While the minister would like to state categorically that she is not opposed to the establishment of a first aid centre at the Bryntirion Estate, the minister is engaging with officials in the department to assess the value and the scope of the project in the light of the priorities of the current administration," it said.
