An investigation by News24 shows that shortly before she was murdered, corruption whistle blower Babita Deokaran flagged a flood of payments by Tembisa Hospital to fishy companies, including three companies headed by ANC big wig Sello Sekhokho, who is currently Treasurer-General of the ANC’s Ekurhuleni region.
Sign this petition demanding that the Gauteng Department of Health:
Urgently suspends the Department’s CFO Lerato Madyo for allegedly authorising fishy payments by Tembisa Hospital.
Conducts a forensic investigation into this massive scandal that involves more than R100 million for grossly overpriced medical supplies.
Answers DA questions in the Gauteng Legislature concerning the apparent cover-up of the Tembisa Hospital payments.

Sign this petition demanding President Ramaphosa to effect the following changes now – starting with firing Bheki Cele:
Fire Bheki Cele as Police minister and appoint someone who is capable of leading the South African Police Service (SAPS).
Then, President Ramaphosa and the ANC government must:
Increase the number of well trained and resourced, visible policing boots on the ground.
Demilitarise and professionalise the police service. The SAPS is filled with top-heavy middle management cadres who do nothing for the protection of the country’s citizens.
Eradicate thebacklog of DNA samples and ensure the full implementation of the Criminal Law (Forensic Procedures) Amendment Act when it comes into effect.
Create Rural Community Policing Units in each rural police station to provide additional protection to these areas so that rural communities do not suffer from crime as a result of lack of policing.
Train and increase the number of police reservists to assist the SAPS with reducing crime levels.
Devolve policing powers to competent provincial and local governments, so that the failing national government has less control of the SAPS.
Expand the powers of existing metropolitan and local law enforcement officers. Empowering security, local law enforcement and metro police will go a long way to improving outcomes and rebuilding trust in the communities the SAPS serves.
Strengthen community policing partnerships with Neighbourhood Watches (NHWs), Community Policing Forums (CPFs), Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs), churches, private security, local law enforcement and metropolitan police.
As residents we demand that UThukela District Municipality listen to the public of Estcourt and come up with a plan to stop the constant water outages. Communities have had to endure being without water for days on end. This has also affected businesses and much needed health facilities including the Estcourt Regional Hospital.
This is a crisis and we demand immediate action now.
The recent KZN floods have brought to light the inefficiency of the KwaZulu-Natal Human settlements department. We still have thousands housed in community halls even though they were promised temporary housing.
This is on top of the transit camps that people have lived in for decades in totally inhumane conditions. There is poor servicing of ablutions, families living in one room, poor sanitation, overrun by rodents and venomous snakes, poorly located often in dangerous locations where there is risk of flooding.
This all while not even in the metro of the province, eThekwini, is there an open and transparent housing list. The poorest of the poor cannot even apply for a house.
