councilmedicalschemesANA reports that the Council for Medical Schemes (CMS) has suspended its general manager of compliance and investigations, Stephen Mmatli, “following tip-offs related to his conduct in the affairs of the regulator”.  

The CMS indicated on Sunday:  “A whistle-blower alleged that Mmatli deliberately misled the regulator of the medical schemes industry to take decisions in favour of certain organisations.  He allegedly benefited financially in return.  The seriousness of the allegations warranted his suspension as a precautionary measure to enable the regulator to conduct the investigation without any interference.”  CMS acting registrar and CEO Dr Sipho Kabane added that he had served Stephen Mmatli with a letter of precautionary suspension with full pay “pending the outcome of investigations into serious acts of misconduct.  As we intend to investigate these allegations, I believe a precautionary suspension is in the best interest for both parties.”
