MBABANE: Zinhle Matsebula,the Managing Director(MD) of Lifespan Pharmaceuticals and Cerium Scientific says, Auditor General(AG) Timothy Matsebula and former Finance Minister Neal Rijikernberg must kill her within seventy-two(72) hours, otherwise, she will spill the beans and inform the Nation that, there was never a Forensic Audit in the first place.

The businesswoman who accumulated questionable wealth within two(2) years amid the health crisis,is a subject of a high level investigation into the disappearance of drugs in public hospitals. She allegedly colluded with one Sincendile Dlamini, the Chief Procurement Officer in the Ministry of Health with an alleged intention to defraud Government.

But on Thursday, after a series of investigative articles published by this Swaziland News, the businesswoman finally reacted on her Facebook page thretening to spill the beans.

This comes after this publication reported that, Banks have labelled her a risk amid the investigation and as a result, she might struggle to secure loans from financial institutions to fund tenders awarded by government.

“I am giving these four, 72 hours to meet and plan how will they kill me becuse I am so tired of being dragged into this mud and be called a thief and fraudster. I want  to spill all the beans and the wickedness of lying to the whole nation.The nation deserves to know that there was never a Forensic Audit.1.Neal Rijikernberg. 2. Timothy Matsebula.3.Bongile Khumalo. 4. Nondumiso Tfwala.This time around your meetings shouldn’t about taking me out of the system and weakening the health system but plan on how to kill me within 3 days.I have got nothing left to lose”, said the businesswoman in the Facebook post on Thursday.

The businesswoman had not responded to a subsequent message sent to her where she was asked to clarify the Facebook post.

Efforts to reach Timothy Matsebula, Nondumiso Tfwala and Bongile Khumalo proved unsuccessful at the time of compiling this report.

Reached for comments,Neal Rijikernberg, the former Minister of Finance urged Matsebula to approach relevant or lawful authorities if she had information suggesting shady dealing on his part.

“I am not in a position to comment on behalf of government as you may be aware that this is a government issue, maybe the PS is better position to do so. Secondly this matter is before court and it would be unethical for me to comment and lastly like any citizen of the State I am not above the law and if there is anything suggesting some shaddy dealings on my sight lawful authorities may be approached by the aggrieved person and appropriate action be instituted against myself”, said the former Finance Minister.

The former Finance Minister launched a high level investigation into the health crisis amid disappearance of drugs in public hospitals subsequent to Parliament recommendations.

Sincendile Dlamini, the Chief Procurement Officer who was allegedly colluding with businesswoman Zinhle Matsebula was subsequently suspended amid the investigation.
