News Description

BUSINESS DAY Zokufa died on Sunday after a short illness, after taking up his appointment as CEO at the CMS in November Council for Medical Schemes (CMS) registrar and CEO Dr Humphrey Zokufa died on Sunday after a short illness, according to a CMS statement released on Monday. A veteran administrator, Zokufa had taken up his appointment to the CMS November 1, following the quiet departure of Dr Monwabisi Gantsho, who left under a cloud. Prior to his appointment to the CMS, Zokufa had been the MD of the Board of Healthcare Funders of Southern Africa (BHF) for almost 11 years. "His energy and passion for an optimal and effective regulatory framework in the private healthcare industry was clear. He was firm in his belief that National Health Insurance (NHI) is not a pipe dream and his dedication, commitment and vision to lead the private healthcare sector into participating in the NHI was his priority," said Dr Elsabé Conradie, the CMS’s GM for stakeholder relations. The CMS would continue with its organisational functioning under chief financial officer Daniel Lehutjo, who will be acting registrar in the interim. Zokufa will be buried on Saturday in Pretoria.
