Monkeys , who were displaced after a hospital was built in the forest , that they inhabited in South Africa , have invaded the hospital .
It was reported that the monkeys steal food from patients .
Daily Mail reveals that the troop of vervet monkeys began targeting the RK Khan Hospital in Durban before 2018 Christmas , entering through windows which had been left open.
Video taken from one of the wards shows the monkeys running along curtain rails above the beds and scampering along the floor, leaving patients in despair.
Still the vervets break in daily and bring fear to patients , many of whom are seriously ill.
The 543 – bed flagship hospital was built on the site of a forest where the monkeys used to live.
South Africa ’ s Health Minister Dr Aaron Motsoaledi said , “ We must find an immediate solution and I no longer want to see monkeys in the premises . ”
