Premier Service Medical Aid Society (PSMAS) has suspended five executives for allegedly stealing millions of dollars during the salaries scandal under former group chief executive officer, Cuthbert Dube.
The five are head of communications and stakeholder relations Ms Mavis Gumbo, head of marketing Mrs Anna Mtengwa Mangwiro, Mr Richard Mutasa (head of risk and audit), company secretary Mr Cosmas Mukwesha and head of managed care, Dr Nicholas Munyonga. They are expected to appear before a disciplinary hearing in the next 14 days to answer to charges of swindling the medical aid society.
The society has already instituted legal proceedings against Dr Dube, former finance director Mr Ernest Gwinyai, former operations director Mr Enock Chitekedza, Mr Raphel Paradzai and Mrs Juliana Sabarauta. PSMAS board chairman Mr Jeremiah Bvirindi confirmed the latest suspension of the five executives yesterday.
