Ashley Mthunzi, CEO of Tembisa Hospital, has broken his silence on the skinny jeans scandal that recently rocked the hospital, claiming it was a typo.
The hospital reportedly spent R500,000 on skinny jeans last year, ahead of the third coronavirus wave in June.
The funds were allegedly paid to a new company that had been formed just a month before it was awarded the tender.
The company is said to be connected to a former soccer player.This was one of the irregularities brought to light by whistleblower Babita Deokaran, who was killed in a hail of bullets.
Mthunzi has now stated that the funds were intended for surgical sutures: “They actually punched the wrong material code when they were buying.”
