    Doctors in the South African city of Durban say the health system is failing patients because of corruption and state negligence.

     

    They say cancer patients in particular are dying because they are not getting the treatment they need in the city’s hospitals.

     

    Al Jazeera's Mohamed Vall reports from Durban.
