Gupta-linked Mediosa channeled patient money to Dubai

A shocking report in the City Press revealed how the Gupta-linked Mediosa - a mobile clinic - allegedly charged patients in the Free State and North West a fee to be screened and then transferred that money going Dubai.

The report states that out of the R954 charged per patient for screening by health care provider Mediosa, R650 was then paid to sub contracted companies from Dubai.

It's alleged that Mediosa was a Gupta front company that planned to expand across the country.

Speaking to Ray White on the Midday Report, Hitekani Magwedze, EWN reporter says there has not been much action in terms of scrapping the contract Mediosa has with the North West province after Health Minister, Dr Aaron Motsoaledi did a walk about at Mediosa run mobile clinics a month ago.

Magwedze reported that the minister said that mobile clinics were a project that the Gupta's were using as an ATM card to move money out of the country and wanted the contracts scrapped and money to be returned.

We know that Mediosa has already been paid R30 million upfront, but nothing has been done so far and premier Supra Mahumapelo says he is conducting a forensic investigation into the matter and then action will be taken.

Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, also responded to Mediosa reports and said what they know as a department is that Mediosa is in the Free State and North West and it is not know if they are in any other parts of South Africa.

I am today sitting with all the MEC's and their HOD's in what is called a National Health Council, the highest decision making body for health in the country.

Dr Aaron Motsoaledi, Health Minister

He says as the national health council they know nothing about this type of service.

But there was no other part of the country where it was accepted. If the Gupta's were dreaming about having their tentacles all over the country, it was not going to happen because the MEC's here are telling me that they were never going to allow it in their provinces.
