Cimas Board responds After Top Executive Discloses Corruption

Harare | The board of trustees of Cimas Medical Aid Society has reassured interested parties that the company is financially stable and that inquiries into claims made by a senior executive are now being conducted.

In his report to the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Health and Child Care, Dr. Sacrifice Chirisa, general manager of Cimas Health Group, brought up accusations of financial misconduct and foolish judgements.

In his contributions, Dr. Chirisa urged government action, believing that doing so would protect society from Mr. Vulindlela Ndlovu, the company’s CEO, abusing his position with wanton abandon.

He accused Ndlovu of embarking on unviable expansion projects locally and abroad, awarding of contracts to friends, and siphoning of money through renovation of clinics at unsustainable costs, among a slew of allegations.

A statement issued by the board says that it takes the allegations of impropriety in respect of the society’s operations seriously.

“While all expenditure, including capital expenditure, is always subjected to the Society’s procurement and governance processes, the internal procedures to objectively look into these allegations are underway.

“Members of the Society and its stakeholders will be kept well informed of these processes and outcomes,” the statement says.

It went on to state that the society is in a sound financial position, contrary to the impression that may have been created through the Press report.

“At all times, the society has complied with both internal and external audit obligations. The external audit reports of the company are already in the public domain,” the statement said.
