FF Plus welcomes dismissal of Gauteng MEC for Health

The FF Plus welcomes the dismissal of the Gauteng MEC for Health, Bandile Masuku, after the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) found that he neglected his duties and responsibilities in terms of the Financial Management Act.

Masuku was placed on special leave in July due to his alleged involvement in the awarding of a Covid-19 tender of R125 million for personal protective equipment (PPE).

The FF Plus is concerned about the announcement made by the Premier of Gauteng, David Makhura, that the vacant position will not be filled until he has received the SIU's final report.

If Premier Makhura does not fill the vacancy, it could have a detrimental effect on the Department of Health's functioning, particularly in the context of the Covid-19 lockdown period.

The FF Plus wants to see that that the personal bank accounts of Masuku as his wife, Loyiso Lugayeni-Masuku, Member of the Mayoral Committee for Group Corporate and Shared Services in the Johannesburg Metro Council, are also investigated seeing as they are both implicated in the fraud.

The FF Plus wants to encourage the SIU to release its final report as soon as possible.
