DA welcomes Gauteng Health suspensions but more is needed

The DA has called for four weeks for the suspension of Gauteng Health CFO Lerato Madyo and Tembisa Hospital CEO Ashley Mthunzi, and we welcome their suspensions today.

But more needs to be done to ensure accountability for the growing scandal of suspicious payments totalling R850 million by Tembisa Hospital that murdered whistleblower Babita Deokaran flagged as “possibly fraudulent”.

The department has been slow to suspend the CFO and the Tembisa Hospital CEO.

We need to know more details of the investigation promised by Gauteng Premier David Makhura which needs to be no-holds-barred, speedy and decisive in holding to account all those involved in corruption.

We Need Justice For Babita!
