Tribunal spokesperson Selby Makgotho says there is a prima facie evidence of wrongdoing, malpractices and irregularities.

News24 reported on Wednesday that the Special Investigating Unit's (SIU) Special Tribunal has issued summonses to 13 nonprofit organisations implicated in unjustified enrichment emanating from the Life Esidimeni scandal.

The summonses were issued on Monday, tribunal spokesperson Selby Makgotho told News24 on Wednesday.

The tribunal was expected to recover an amount of R5.5m from the organisations through civil litigation, Makgotho said.

Joanne Joseph on Afternoon Drive speaks to Makgotho for more.

The SIU found that there is a prima facie evidence of wrongdoing, malpractices and quite a number of irregularities by the nonprofit organisations who were involved in the Life Esidimeni arbitration dispute.

Selby Makgotho, Spokesperson, Special Tribunal

The file is now with the tribunal. There are quite a number of allegations which have to be tested before the tribunal so that all the parties, the SIU as well as the department of health in Gauteng will be able to come and present the and of course the other party, the defendants, will be able to come and give their side of the story.

Selby Makgotho, Spokesperson, Special Tribunal

Asked what will happen if the organisations have already used the money, Makgotho says there are other legal ways to deal the matter.

The Tribunal Act has actually been strengthened and is fully empowered to grant orders... even attachment orders can be issued.
