OPINION:Businesswoman Zinhle Matsebula acting like a loose canon,multimillion health crisis investigation was not launched by Finance Minister,AG in their personal capacity.

Friday, 3rd November, 2023

Businesswoman Zinhle Matsebula who threatened to spill the beans on former Finance Minister Neal Rijikernberg and Auditor General(AG) Timothy Matsebula among others must know that, what is of vital public interest in the health crisis investigation is the truth behind the disappearance and/or shortage of drugs in public hospitals and anything less than that, will be a product of verbal diarrhea from a frustrated loose canon.

I am an investigative journalist and I know exactly how individuals who are subject of an investigation behave, at times, they can go as far as targeting the reputations of those who launched the investigations just to divert focus.

Even the Forensic investigation company that was mandated to investigate the circumstances surrounding the health crisis, was targeted in an effort to undermine the credibility of the investigation.

Unfortunately,the objective behind the investigation and the ongoing investigations by the independent media is to establish the truth behind the shortage of drugs in public hospitals not for petty squabbles, businesswoman Zinhle Matsebula must reveal all the alleged political thugs who looted public funds resulting to the death of hundreds of emaSwati.

This means the investigations by the media and the Forensic Audit launched by Government subsequent to Parliament recommendations, have one common agenda or interest and Zinhle Matsebula must help us around those lines.

One wonders why she decided to wait for three(3) days or seventy-two(72) hours to expose Neal Rijikernberg or Auditor General(AG) Timothy Matsebula.

The shortage of drugs in public hospitals is an urgent matter, if the millions of public funds were stolen by Neal or the Auditor General, Zinhle Matsebula must assist us urgently.

Neal Rijikernberg is a businessman and we might be interested to know if, as a Finance Minister, he won a tender to supply drugs to the Ministry of Health and paid himself millions without delivering resulting to the health crisis.

Perhaps, we might also be interested to know any other relevant information that will ensure that, members of the public have access to drugs as per the constitutional right to life, access to healthcare is a human right.

In conclusion, let me advise businesswoman Zinhle Matsebula that, as we await for her public address where she will spill the beans, she must prepare all the relevant information that will assist us to hold Neal Rijikernberg or the Auditor General(AG) accountable, we don’t want petty squabbles that will divert our focus in this regard.

This investigation was not launched by Neal Rijikernberg or the AG in their personal capacity, it’s a government process that seeks to establish the truth behind the disappearance of drugs in public hospitals and the looting of public funds.

Therefore, we are interested to know information that is, directly or indirectly, linked to the aforementioned individuals public duties and the gravity or significance of such information must be convincing to warrant further investigation.

Businesswoman Zinhle Matsebula, the Director of Lifespam Pharmaceuticals and Cerium Scientific must use the seventy-two(2) hours to prepare herself, we don’t want petty squabbles but evidence from a equally concerned citizen eager to see the health crisis addressed.
