Forensic Audit currently underway at PSMAS, Parliament told

By John Nhandara

THE Government says it is putting in place modalities to ensure viability at Premier Service Medical Aid Society (PSMAS), with a forensic audit underway set to address challenges bedevilling the institution.

The deterioration of service delivery at the Premier Service Medical Aid Society (PSMAS) hogged the limelight during Parliament’s Question and Answer Session this Wednesday.

Vice President General Retired Dr Constantino Chiwenga, who is also the Minister of Health and Child Care updated the house on measures to bring sanity to the medical aid institution.

“We have since dissolved the board at PSMAS and put in place an interim board. We are aware that their reports of corruption at PSMAS and a forensic audit is underway to look into all these issues. What we want is good service delivery and we have also ensured payment of staffers who were reported to have not been paid,” said Dr Chiwenga.

Meanwhile, parliamentarians have been urged to play an active role in championing the protection of minors from child sexual exploitation in their communities.

“This is no longer a government task only, but every stakeholder including you parliamentarians have to find the best solutions for protecting children,” said the Minister of Health and Child Care.

Other issues debated in parliament include abuse of government and presidential schemes such as the Pfumvudza/Intwasa programme, with culprits being warned.
