Breaking News: Dr Joe SUSPENDS Ramaphosa’s closest CEO from CABINET, See Full Details.

This comes not exactly a month after Dr David Motau's suspension, at first carried out by Mmamoloko Kubayi, was switched 


Health Minister Dr Joe Phaahla has put the Chief Executive Officer of The Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) Dr David Motau on preparatory suspension. 


This is a finished U-turn on Phaahla's part, having at first lifted Motau's suspension, which was carried out by the then Acting Health Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi prior in August. 


In a proclamation on Wednesday, 25 August 2021, the HPCSA said Motau's suspension was forthcoming an examination concerning claims of wrongdoing. He is at present temporarily free from jail in the wake of being captured for purportedly arranging a R8.7 million delicate extortion plot during his residency as head of wellbeing in the Free State somewhere in the range of 2011 and 2015. 


"Dr Motau was captured on Monday, 02 August 2021. He showed up at the Bloemfontein Magistrate's Court close by other twelve suspects and was delivered on bail. The prudent suspension of the recorder/CEO is to keep up with the respectability of the Council while examinations are led," said Prof Simon Nemutandani, leader of the HPCSA. 


Motau's suspension from the committee became effective on Wednesday. 


The body of evidence against him and in excess of twelve other denounced in the matter will be heard on 22 September, at the Bloemfontein justice's court. 


"It is asserted that throughout the administrative review in the Department of Health, the review group from the examiner general mentioned data on specific installments to specialist co-ops and accordingly questioned the acquisition measures that were followed," said Hawks representative Capt Christopher Singo. 


"Accordingly, an interior examination followed whereby it was found that bogus or manufactured 'demands for installment advices' were submitted during the time of January 2011 to December 2015 for installments concerning the specialist co-ops" 


Specialists assert that there is still no hint of proof that the genuine administrations were delivered by the specialist organizations.
