The Gauteng government has suspended the suspension of Department of Health Chief Financial Officer Lerat Madio and Tembisa Hospital CEO Ashley Mtunzi over allegations of improper procurement and payment of service providers at the hospital.

They are also suspected of possible links to the murder of whistleblower Babbitt Deakaran, the former chief financial officer of the Gauteng Department of Health, who was killed a year ago.

Deakaran was an SIU witness in the R332m PPE scandals in Gauteng. A recent News24 investigation revealed that in the weeks before her murder, Deakaran raised concerns about questionable payments at Thembisa Hospital.

Gauteng Premier Vuyo Mhaga’s spokesperson says another senior health official was recently threatened.

“The HOD of the Department of Health, Dr Namonde Nolutshungu, has also initiated criminal proceedings against the SAPS. Dr. Nolutshungu drew the Prime Minister’s attention to the threats she received via email. The Prime Minister immediately ordered Gauteng Police Commissioner Elias Mawele to take appropriate action and find those responsible. The Prime Minister is saying that those involved in corruption and underground business will face the full force of the law,” says Mhaga.
