War Vets Demand Dismissal Of PSMAS Offenders

The newly registered Business Consortium for War Veterans has expressed concern at the developments at the Premier Services Medical Aid Society (PSMAS), calling for those involved in corrupt activities to be relieved of their duties forthwith.

The voice by war veterans comes amid allegations of interference in the conduct of disciplinary actions against the suspended Acting CEO, Mr Henry Mandishona, as well as the alleged advance payment of US$100 000 to the Minister of Health and Child Care, Dr David Parirenyatwa (pictured), for services yet to be rendered.

Addressing journalists in Harare, Business Consortium for War Veterans Chairman, Andy Mhanga said those implicated in corrupt activities must be relieved of their duties to ensure that the organisation retains the confidence of the country’s citizens.

“As war veterans, we are concerned on developments at PSMAS which require urgent attention for the organisation to run smoothly. There are serious allegations of interference by government officials which is stifling due processes to take place regarding disciplinary hearings. Those involved should stop forthwith and we call for the intervention of the President,” he said.

PSMAS has been hitting the headlines for the wrong reasons since last year and the struggle for powerful posts within the organisation is reportedly the order of the day at the expense of service delivery.
