News Description

RETAIL BRIEF MED BRIEF AFRICA Lobby group, Afriforum has laid criminal charges against all nine heads of provincial Departments of Health in terms of Section 86 (1) of the Public Finance Management Act, 1999 (Act No. 1 of 1999) relating to irregular, fruitless, wasteful and unauthorised expenditure totalling over R5.8 billion during the 2017/2018 financial year. The charges were laid at police stations in the nine provinces and forms part of the organisation’s campaign against the implementation of National Health Insurance (NHI). It coincides with the launch of a report by Afriforum earlier this week, detailing why it is of the opinion that the roll out of NHI will be unconstitutional. According to Afriforum, the impact study on which the NHI is based is totally inadequate, requiring the NHI Bill to be set aside.
