More Doctors Confessing To Intentionally Diagnosing Healthy People With Cancer To Make Money

It happens more often than you can imagine, but more Doctors are finally getting caught in the act of misrepresenting their oath and fraudulently diagnosing healthy patients with cancer to turn a quick buck from kickbacks on chemotherapy poisons.

Why shouldn’t Doctors lie when the entire cancer industry is one gigantic fabrication from start to finish? Is it any wonder that cancer societies worldwide put a far greater financial initiative on chemotherapy and radiation research than disease prevention techniques? Preventing disease doesn’t make money, but treating disease certainly does.

Take Dr. Farid Fata, a prominent cancer doctor in Michigan who admitted in court one year ago to intentionally and wrongfully diagnosing healthy people with cancer. Fata also admitted to giving them chemotherapy drugs for the purpose of making a profit.

Were his patients shocked? You bet they were. Who would ever suspect a Doctor of faking a diagnosis to collect money. It’s unconscionable. Yet it happens with cancer and almost every disease that medical doctors can generate income through kickbacks and commissions based on the volume of patients treated with specific pharmaceuticals. Like anything people are used as a comodity.

“Many of these unscrupulous Physicians are like businessmen without a conscience. The only difference is they have your health and trust in their hands–a very dangerous combination when money is involved,” said Dr. Sayed Mohammed, a retired Oncologist who admits seeing the trend more than a decade ago.

“It is my choice,” Fata said on Tuesday of his surprise guilty plea, which included rattling off the names of numerous drugs he prescribed for his patients over the years. In each admission, he uttered these words:

“I knew that it was medically unnecessary.”

Fata was charged with running a $35-million Medicare fraud scheme that involved billing the government for medically unnecessary oncology and hematology treatments. The government says Fata ran the scheme from 2009 to the present, through his medical businesses, including Michigan Hematology Oncology Centers, with offices in Clarkston, Bloomfield Hills, Lapeer, Sterling Heights, Troy and Oak Park.

According to the government, Fata had a patient load of 1,200 people and received $62 million from Medicare; he billed for more than $150 million.

U.S. Attorney Barbara McQuade said she plans to seek life in prison for Fata, calling his case is “the most egregious” health care fraud case her office has seen. She said Fata not only bilked the government — which is typical in such cases — but he also harmed patients.


Lying with Statistics

Prostate cancer is another great example which doctors falsely give prognoses about without giving patients the facts. A prostate (PSA) blood test looks for prostate-specific antigen, a protein produced by the prostate gland. High levels are supposedly associated with prostate cancer. The problem is that the association isn’t always correct, and when it is, the prostate cancer isn’t necessarily deadly. Only about 3 percent of all men die from prostate cancer. The PSA test usually leads to overdiagnosis — biopsies and treatment in which the side effects are impotence and incontinence. Repeated biopsies may spread cancer cells into the track formed by the needle, or by spilling cancerous cells directly into the bloodstream or lymphatic system. More than 90% of Doctors who encourage cancer treatment for prostate cancer will generate a commission from each treatment the patient receives. It proves risky and often deadly in the long run for most people who don’t understand how to take care of their health and are persuaded by false statistics.

Dozens of excellent large studies have been done on men who have had cancer discovered in their prostate with a biopsy. In over 97% of the cases this cancer either never spreads outside of the gland to cause harm or the patient dies of something else long before any evidence of cancer spreading outside of the prostate occurs. In that 3% where cancer is aggressive and harms the patient, it has already spread beyond the limits of surgical resection long before discovery; thus, these men are not helped by surgery either.

After at least seven years of post-college graduate medical education on the emotional, mental, and physical condition of the human being, you would expect a physician to be a powerhouse of goodwill for his or her patients. Unfortunately, too many doctors fail to keep the welfare of their customers at the forefront, as their main concern. The needs to boost their own egos, self-preservation, and the quest for more money often result in inappropriate care and harm to the patient.

Most women are often told that hysterectomies lead to many different cures for cancer and other ailments. This is misrepresenting the truth. The research done so far has demonstrated no improvement in survival regardless of the aggressiveness of many of these unnecessary treatments.

Breast cancer screenings also result in an increase in breast cancer mortality and fail to address prevention.Despite no evidence ever having supported any recommendations made for regular periodic screening and mammography at any age, malicious recommendations from the Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) on breast cancer screening are now suggesting that breast cancer screening should begin at age 40 and earlier in high-risk patients. Published in the Journal of the American College of Radiology (JACR), the recommendations released by the SBI and ACR state that the average patient should begin annual breast cancer screening at age 40. They also target women in their 30s if they are considered “high risk” as they stated.

The rate of advanced breast cancer for U.S. women 25 to 39 years old nearly doubled from 1976 to 2009, a difference too great to be a matter of chance and more about diagnoses.

A disturbing study published in the New England Journal of Medicine is bringing mainstream attention to the fact that mammography has caused far more harm than good in the millions of women who have employed it over the past 30 years as their primary strategy in the fight against breast cancer.

It always has been and always will be about the money. It is not time to recognize the trend?

Chemotherapy Does Not Heal The Body–It Slowly Destroys It

Chemotherapy boosts cancer growth and long-term mortality rates. Most chemotherapy patients either die or are plagued with illness within 10-15 years after treatment. It destroys their immune system, increases neuro-cognitive decline, disrupts endocrine functioning and causes organ and metabolic toxicities. Patients basically live in a permanent state of disease until their death. The cancer industry marginalizes safe and effective cures while promoting their patented, expensive, and toxic remedies whose risks far exceed any benefit. This is what they do best, and they do it because it makes money, plain and simple.

The reason a 5-year relative survival rate is the standard used to assess mortality rates is due to most cancer patients going downhill after this period. It’s exceptionally bad for business and the cancer industry knows it. They could never show the public the true 97% statistical failure rate in treating long-term metastatic cancers. If they did publish the long-term statistics for all cancers administered cytotoxic chemotherapy, that is 10+ years and produced the objective data on rigorous evaluations including the cost-effectiveness, impact on the immune system, quality of life, morbidity and mortality, it would be very clear to the world that chemotherapy makes little to no contribution to cancer survival at all. No such study has ever been conducted by independent investigators in the history of chemotherapy. The only studies available come from industry funded institutions and scientists and none of them have ever inclusively quantified the above variables.

Why? Money, greed and profits run the cancer industry–nothing else. The cancer establishment must retreat from the truth to treat cancer because there will never be any profit for them in in eradicating the disease. There is no governing body in the world that protects consumers from being subjected to these toxic therapies or even known carcinogens in our foods our environment, because that too, will prevent the profits from rolling in. It’s a business of mammoth proportions and must be treated as such. The most powerful anti-carcinogenic plants in the world such as cannabis must be demonized and be made illegal because they are so effective at killing cancer cells without side effects. Cannabinoids are so efficient at treating disease, that the U.S. Government patented them in 2003.

If a “magic bullet” were used FIRST by orthodox medicine, meaning the cut/burn/slash/poison treatments were avoided, a 90% true cure rate would be easy to achieve. But the fact is that the leaders in the medical community have absolutely no interest in finding a “magic bullet.” A “magic bullet” would cost the drug companies hundreds of billions of dollars, and patients would have less hospitalization and less doctor visits, etc.

You might ask your oncologist why your chances of survival are only 3% (ignoring all of their statistical gibberish such as “5-year survival rates” and deceptive terms like “remission” and “response”), when your chance of survival would be over 90% if they used something like DMSO. Actually, bring up DMSO to any oncologist and most of them won’t even talk to you about it. Why? Because DMSO is a natural product, cannot be patented and cannot be made profitable because it is produced by the ton in the wood industry.

Dr. Farid Fata is only a consequence of the system. Like him there are thousands of legally practicing Doctors and oncologists in the United States and abroad who are guilty of the same crimes, but because they fly below the radar, they are never caught.

As we continue playing this charade of making the public believe that poisons treat cancer, people will continue to die, and Doctors will continue to make money up to the day of their patient’s death. Every once in a while, we may catch a few (of the many) like Dr. Fata, who self-destruct due to their own greed. We will claim they are outlaws, banish them and tarnish their reputations based on a perception that a healthy person should never be unnecessarily subjected to chemotherapy for money. So we can harshly judge and legally prosecute the Doctor who falsely prescribes poison to a healthy person for money, but we proudly accept the Doctor who prescribes poison to an unhealthy person for money. I find that truly mind blowing.

12 Food Items You Should Never Refrigerate

Ever since we discovered the refrigerator, it has become a safe haven for our food items. We keep everything in it so it's safe for consumption after a period of time. But not every food item should be refrigerated.

Here are some food items you shouldn't keep in a fridge:

1. Hot Sauce
Whether it's pepper sauce or any sauce that is hot and spicy shouldn't be kept in the fridge. The reasons is that, hot sauce stays fresh for years years without refrigerating it, putting it in the fridge decreases it's life span.

2. Tomatoes
Putting tomatoes in the fridge stops it from ripening and kill it's flavor.

3. Bread
The lifespan of bread is very short, putting it in the fridge makes it go stale even faster.

4. Onions
Onions should be kept in a dry and ventilated area. Keeping in the fridge dries it out, leaving it soft, which makes it decay faster.

5. Avocado
Avocado, just like the tomato, won't ripen faster if you put it in the fridge.

6. Honey
Honey never spoils and shouldn't be refrigerated, since the only point of refrigeration is to keep food items from spoiling.

7. Watermelon
The only time watermelon should be kept in the fridge is when it's cut, uncut watermelon shouldn't be kept in the fridge.

8. Banana
Just like many of the aforementioned, when banana is kept in the fridge, it stops it from ripening. You can however put banana in the fridge if it's too ripe to stop it from ripening more.

9. Ketchup
Ketchup shouldn't be kept in the fridge.

10. Cooking Oil
All oils, except for groundnut oil, should never be kept in the fridge.

11. Apple
Apples could last a week without refrigerating it, refrigerating it decreases it's life span.

12. Groundnut Paste (Peanut Butter)
It doesn't need to be refrigerated as it's good on it's own for months.

"We Call For Jacob Zuma’s Head" - Says ANCYL’s Mcebo Dlamini

The outspoken ANCYL member has even suggested a new list of leaders to step in and improve matters in the ANC’s national executive committee.

Outspoken ANC Youth League (ANCYL) member Mcebo Dlamini has called for the dissolving of the ANC national executive committee (NEC), which he says has failed to hold President Jacob Zuma in to account.

This follows the ANCYL’s call for an early elective conference after the mother body performed poorly in the local government elections. Dlamini made it clear he was speaking in his personal capacity.

Dlamini says the NEC is filled with mere Zuma praise singers who can’t hold him to account because they “eat together” and therefore “they must go”. He says they failed to hold Zuma to account on the Nkandla matter, in which he believes they could have just paid back the money. He alleges they “defended the indefensible” on the Nkandla matter and called for the sacking of Zuma after the ANC lost significant support under his leadership.

“We are calling for Zuma’s head in principle because he’s the general of the ship.”

Zuma engaged in a protracted battle over whether the public protector’s recommendations on Nkandla were legally binding. In one much-criticised parliamentary session, Zuma said: “The public protector made recommendations. The recommendations are recommendations, subject to be taken or not to be taken.”

After the DA and EFF took the matter to the Constitutional Court, Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng ruled that Zuma had failed to uphold, defend, and respect the constitution as the supreme law of the land.

“They [the NEC] are scared of taking Zuma into [sic] account because they eat with him,” wrote Dlamini, who added there were other issues where Zuma had escaped accountability, including Marikana, Guptagate and the issue of free education.

“44 something people died [at Marikana] and no one was held accountable. They failed to debate the issue of free education.

“The ANC NEC are doing their own selfish things. The whole NEC must be dissolved because they failed to represent what the ANC stands for.

Dlamini also tabled his preferred list of candidates to steer the ship at the top of the party: He named Deputy President Cyril Ramaphosa, as well Joel Netitshendze, Health Minister Aaron Motsoaledi, former Johannesburg mayor Parks Tau, former Reserve Bank governor Tito Mboweni, Thoko Didiza, Thandi Modise, Fraser Moloketi, Naledi Pandor, Senzo Mchunu, Vuyiswa Tulelo “and maybe” (according to him) Rob Davis.

Meet 26-Year-Old Bodybuilder 'Andrew Jones' Who Carries His Heart In A Backpack [Photos]

This is the heartbreaking story of a bodybuilder who suffered heart failure and was rushed to hospital for a transplant. After the successful transplant, the man now carries his artificial heart around in a backpack. 

MailOnline revealed that Andrew Jones, from Conneticut, first became unwell in 2012 after struggling to breathe during a run.

He was horrified when two years later he started to cough up blood and developed a high fever.

In hospital, doctors diagnosed the 26-year-old with cardiomyopathy - a hereditary disease of the heart muscle - and soon he became so weak he couldn't stand, walk or dress himself. Just months later, he was told he can only survive if a transplant was immediately carried out.

However, because there were no organs available, he was fitted with a pacemaker and an artificial heart - which he now carries around in a bag on his back.

Now, he is back to the gym and said he cries after workouts as he feels so 'thankful to be alive'.
Recalling suffering from heart failure, Mr Jones said: "It's something I would never want to wish upon my worst enemy. You can't breathe, you can't think, you don't eat and you don't sleep."

He continued: "Living with this disease put me in a pattern with depression and physical pain. I had to stop working because I wouldn't be able to stand for more than 10 minutes.

"I dreaded going to the kitchen because that meant that I had to go up and down my stairs. I couldn't even get dressed without panting and gasping for air - my life was falling apart and I just wanted relief."

Mr Jones even launched his own charity, Hearts at Large, to raise awareness for organ donations and has over 14,000 followers on his Instagram, @FitnessWithAJ.

Grateful to be alive, he breaks down in tears at the gym as he is so happy he is still able to train. 

Cardiomyopathy (literally "heart muscle disease") is the measurable deterioration for any reason of the ability of the myocardium (the heart muscle) to contract, usually leading to heart failure.

The Dirtiest Part Of The Body: It Is Usually Forgotten Even By Those Who Shower Twice A Day!

There's no doubt that a person's health and well-being partially depend on personal hygiene. No matter how hard you try, or how many times a day you take a shower, there still will never be immaculately clean parts, there still will be more than 67 types of bacteria on your body.

In this article, we'll tell you what is the dirtiest part of human's body and how to take care of it.

Regular showering can remove most of bacteria on your body, but there's one one part which is inaccessible and keeps dirt in even after showering.

And yeah… it's the belly button! Yes, the navel – an actual home of bacteria, and the dirtiest part on your body.

Haven't expected this, right?

The belly button is indrawn – and that is the reason of being named the dirtiest part as because of being indrawn it collects sweat, dead skin cells, lotion, soap, and lint. Which is perfect condition for developing bacteria. To avoid different health issues, including infections, you have to regularly take care of your belly button by cleaning it from dirt.

How to clean your belly button?

Inner side:
Before taking a shower, take a cotton swab and soak it in some alcohol and rub gently your belly button. Take another cotton swab and apply some shower gel on it and rub the belly button, then clean it from the shower gel with water when taking a shower. Rinse it again with warm water, and dry with a towel.

Outer side:
Apply some shower gel on a wet end of a towel, and rub your belly button, then rinse it with warm water and dry with a towel.

"'Khwezi' Told Me Jacob Zuma Raped Her" - Says Kasrils

Former intelligence minister Ronnie Kasrils has refuted claims that he gave instructions to the woman, known as Khwezi, who accused Jacob Zuma of rape in 2005.

On Monday, the North Gauteng High Court heard a defamation case against Deputy Defence Minister Kebby Maphatsoe brought by Kasrils.

The former minister of intelligence is suing Maphatsoe for R1-million, including legal costs, for his "false and derogatory statements" that Kasrils was behind the rape charges.

During an adjournment, Kasrils told journalists how he and Zuma met Khwezi when she was seven years old and that he was horrified when she told years later that she had been raped by Zuma.

Zuma, then ANC deputy president, was acquitted of rape in 2006. Khwezi and her mother fled South Africa and were granted asylum in The Netherlands. 

The case was postponed to today (Tuesday).

The message reads: Point of correction: Babes Wodumo was discovered by me. Yes, me, in 2013, when I selected her to be in the Hawaii music video where she formed a friendship with Afro. I’m not an agent, I’m Nana Zondi! N g iyabonga.

A source close to Nana said she doesn’t mind that she wasn’t responsible for the sexy dancer’s success in the music industry – but feels she deserves some credit.

“She groomed Babes for a few years. There’s no need to discredit her for her role in discovering the now famous Babes Wodumo,” the source said.

Babes shot to fame with her single Wololo, featuring Mampintsha of Big Nuz fame.

The song made her an overnight sensation.

This has made her one of this year’s rising stars and has seen her performance schedule rocketing up.

DJ Tira is known for unearthing raw talent and turning them into stars.

Babes has been setting social media ablaze.

DJ Tira said: “I can’t even comment on this issue because Babes is Mampintsha’s protege. Leave me out of this matter.”

This was after he confirmed knowing Nana.

When Sunday Sun contacted Mampintsha he kept dropping the calls.

Nana said she can’t believe people haven’t got the decency to give credit where it’s due.

“Tira likes taking credit for things he didn’t do.

“All I want to say is I discovered Babes Wodumo in 2013 after I made a call for public auditions, looking for dancers for a music video.

“That music video was for the song, Hawaii, by Big Nuz, which I directed.

“Anyone in the know knows I chose Babes, together with 10 other dancers from this public audition and I used to get her gigs in Durban.

“She then appeared in every Big Nuz music video after the Hawaii music video.

“I can be referred to as an agent in interviews instead of the one who saw potential in her and gave her a platform and a chance to meet DJ Tira and Mampintsha,” Nana said.

“They need to get this right: I’m so happy for her and about what’s happening with her career and I even sent her an SMS.

“My advice is they need to also train her voice so she doesn’t rely on her body and dance moves to get ahead.”

Babes Wodumo’s manager, Qhubani “DJ Qness” Ndlovu, asked: “What did she do for Babes Wodumo if she discovered her?”

Exposed: ANC's Molemole Municipality Mayor Edward Paya Has Been Sleeping With Councillor's Wife

Edward Paya, Molemole municipality mayor claims he did not know his lover was his friend's wife.
Top ANC officials in Limpopo, including premier and chairman Stan Mathabatha, secretary Knocks Seabi and deputy secretary Makoma Makhurupetje, have been embroiled in a sex scandal involving the newly appointed mayor of Molemole municipality and the wife of his friend, who is a councillor.

This comes after Conti Mokobane, who is mayor Edward Paya's personal friend wrote to Mathabatha and Seabi seeking an urgent meeting to discuss his marital issues.

He alleged in his letter to the provincial leadership of the ANC that Paya was bonking his wife.

Sunday World understands that the meeting took place on Thursday at the ANC Limpopo headquarters in Polokwane and was attended by Mathabatha, Seabi and Makhurupetje as well as Batlokwa traditional leaders led by kgoshi Kgadu Machaka.

It is understood that Mokobane raised complaints against Seabi who he accused of ignoring him for seven months after he was alerted about the matter.

"I told the premier I don't want the matter to be handled by Seabi because he ignored me for seven months, and he agreed with me and asked Makhurupetje to handle it," he told Sunday World this week.

"The mayor's wife told me that her husband was sleeping with my wife and then showed me the mayor's phone with SMSes and nude pictures of my wife.

"I could not believe my eyes. I was shattered and I felt like doing something that I could not be proud of. I felt like shooting him, but I called myself to order."

Paya confirmed that he had been sleeping with Mokobane's wife but claimed that he did not know that she was his wife.

"The woman you are talking about was my girlfriend when we were still at school and I did not know that she was that man's wife because he never introduced her to me. I have been friends with that man for a long time. I only discovered that she was his wife when he introduced me to her and I immediately stopped seeing her."

Paya said he intended to send a delegation of elders from his family to the Mokobanes so that the matter could be handled in a traditional way.

He said he still has high regard for his friend and hopes that the matter will be resolved.

"I plead that the matter should not be used to divide society and the family of the ANC," Paya said.

Paya appealed to members of the ANC to not judge him.

Machaka's spokesman Rankese Mufamadi confirmed that the chiefs met with the ANC provincial leaders about Mokobane's complaint.

"We sympathise with the man whose marriage was destroyed by Paya because he is one of us. We are against Paya's appointment as mayor because he has no respect for traditional leaders," said Mufamadi.

ANC provincial spokeswoman Khumbudzo Ntshavheni could not confirm or deny the meeting.

"I can't comment about the meeting and even if the meeting took place it's not for public consumption. If it was . we would have issued a media statement.

"The ANC was not a marriage counselling centre and matters of marriages are responsibilities of families in African culture and in civil matters of the court," said Ntshavheni.

The extramarital relationship between Paya and Makobane's wife was confirmed through a barrage of the raunchy exchange of messages between the two dating back to the beginning of last year.

The messages were allegedly seen and exposed by Paya's wife after she went through her husband's cellphone.

Some of the SMSes read: "Morning love I just can't help myself but to appreciate and thank you for the love and time that u are giving me. The efforts you are putting in this relationship. Thank u. U complete me and I am still in love with you like the first day we met. I just wish to mother ur kids and I feel so really positive that God will answer us."

Paya responded to the SMS saying: "Thank you so much my love. I have that hope too my love. I feel that one day our prayers will be answered sweetheart."

In another message, Mokobane's wife sent Paya a picture of her punani and said: "Mogatsaka o nrobile dinoka my love" loosely translated as meaning you broke my back.

In another message, she confirmed that they were also having sex at Mokobane's house and it reads: ". Ur essence filled my bed. I love you sweetheart."

Paya responded: "I had a very good night sleep baby. Thanks for pain killers . You gave me a sweet punani."

She then fired off another message saying: "I love you my baby u gave me the perfect 4-5 maabane. Eddy promise to love me and never leave me. I enjoyed being with you."

The woman, in another text message, raised her fears with Paya that people were saying he was going to dump her when he gets promoted to be mayor.

In another SMS the two had a fight over Paya's hesitation to give her R200 to do her hair.

According to another SMS, the councillor's wife also initiated the sexcapades. "Ke dumile gore re nyobane," she said in Pedi.

The woman refused to comment.

EFF Claims ANC’s Dan Bovu Has Offered Its councillors R500‚000 To Vote For ANC In Johannesburg

In a startling claim on Sunday‚ the Economic Freedom Fighters accused the ANC's Dan Bovu of calling its councillors and “offering them money to the value of R500‚000 in exchange for them to vote with the ANC during the elections of the Johannesburg City Council tomorrow”.

The EFF said it would be opening a case of bribery against Bovu‚ the outgoing Member of the Mayoral Committee for Housing for Johannesburg.

It warned that its votes were not up for sale – “be it money or positions”.

“The ANC in Johannesburg must know that no amount of bribery will ever reconcile you with the people who rejected you in a popular vote. The ANC must concede defeat and not try win elections through corruption‚” the EFF said in a statement.

“Even if they were to be successful on Monday to buy any councillor candidate‚ their Mayor will not last because political parties have the right to replace councillors. We will therefore do so and ensure that the ANC is out of power in Johannesburg‚” the EFF said.

“The EFF's votes are not up for sale‚ be it money or positions. We are going to punish the ANC in Johannesburg which has failed to transform people's lives for the past 22 years. We are going to punish them for all the arrogance of choosing to protect corruption at the expense of the people. We are going to make sure that democracy prevails and that Dan Bovu is arrested and jailed for attempting to bribe EFF councillors in exchange for votes‚” the EFF asserted.

Exposed: Tycoon Spent Nelson Mandela Funeral Millions On Cars, Jewellery And Zuma's Wife Nompumelelo Ntuli-Zuma

Millions of rands paid out for memorial services for Nelson Mandela were splurged on luxury cars, jewellery and high-end clothing by a controversial Durban businessman - and some of it found its way into the account of one of the first ladies.

The Sunday Times can today reveal that politically connected businessman Mabheleni Ntuli was paid R18-million by an events management company owned by businesswoman Carol Bouwer, who enlisted Ntuli as a subcontractor to supply infrastructure for memorial services for Mandela in December 2013 across Mpumalanga.

Bouwer's company, Carol Bouwer Productions, had been paid R39-million by the Mpumalanga provincial government as the main contractor to organise memorial services to mark Mandela's death.

While the payment has been reported on before, details of how it was spent are only emerging now.

The money trail seen by the Sunday Times shows that Bouwer subsequently paid out four tranches of R4.5-million each into the bank account of Dartingo Trading 20, a company solely owned by the flamboyant Ntuli.
Carol Bouwer's company had allegedly been paid R39-million by the Mpumalanga provincial government to organise memorial services to mark Mandela's death.


Before the payments the account had a balance of less than R5,000.

Some of the money was later paid from this account to the bank account of one of President Jacob Zuma's wives, Nompumelelo "MaNtuli" Ntuli-Zuma.

Ntuli, a well-known businessman in Durban, is known to have donated to Zuma trusts in the past.

The Hawks have confirmed that they are investigating a case of fraud and corruption related to tenders awarded by the Mpumalanga government for Mandela memorial services.

"The matter is with the anticorruption task team and the docket is sitting with the prosecutor for further advice," said Hawks spokesman Hangwani Mulaudzi.

"We are investigating the whole case and process. We are looking at what transpired during that time and out of that we will be able to determine who will be prosecuted.

"The investigation is ongoing. Most of the documents have been collected, so the issue now is that we are waiting for the prosecutor to give further instructions, if there are [any], and then a decision will be taken if they proceed with a prosecution or not."

The Hawks launched the investigation following a complaint reportedly lodged by the National Treasury after Bouwer's company was appointed without any tender process being followed. The speed with which payments were made to her in December 2013 also raised questions.

This is the latest development in a series of scandals related to the fraudulent use of public money around Mandela memorials.

"I wouldn't claim that somebody delivered on something that he didn't deliver on. I am very forthcoming with information because I have nothing to hide"

In 2014 the Hawks prosecuted top government leaders and senior ANC figures in Buffalo City in the Eastern Cape for fraud related to millions of rands spent on events to mourn Mandela.

It has been established that, just days after receiving payment, Ntuli went on a shopping spree at the SMD Group motor dealership in Ballito, north of Durban, which sells Jaguars, Land Rovers, BMWs and other luxury vehicles.

Ntuli made three payments amounting to R5-million to the dealership.

It could not be verified which cars he bought, but it has been established that on two separate occasions Ntuli spent R2-million at the dealership. In one other instance he spent R1-million.

In the same period Ntuli splurged another R1-million at the SMG Umhlanga Rocks dealership. He also forked out more than R445,000 at jewellery retailer Arthur Kaplan and R42,000 at a Louis Vuitton shop.

Ntuli made a R55,000 payment to MaNtuli on December 31.

MaNtuli's lawyer, Ulrich Roux, said she had explained that the payment was a gift and that there were many others.
Politically connected businessman Mabheleni Ntuli was paid R18-million by an events company to supply infrastructure for the Mandela memorial events.


When Ntuli was contacted this week for clarity on the payment to MaNtuli and his relationship to her, he initially denied giving her money but later confirmed that he had.

"I am not related to her, we just share the same surname. Why should I give her money? ... There are so many people that I have paid money to ... What is wrong with that, because she is not the only one, what about the other people? I know her, we share the same surname. I don't look at her profile to give her money," said Ntuli.

Ntuli said he deserved to spoil himself after being paid as he had rendered services.

"I never bought a car for anyone ... I don't know if it is wrong to buy a car ... once you have been paid for everything there is nothing wrong with buying a car ... I don't ask you, after your employer has paid you, why you spend your money at Shoprite ... You asked me about the payment I made to MaNtuli, how do you know about it if you didn't get into the account? That is not fair," said Ntuli.

He said he was not aware of any investigation, and if there was, Bouwer should be its subject.

Roux said: " She and Mr Ntuli have obviously been close friends for a number of years. They are not family members but in her culture they regard each other as family even though they are not blood family. She is very close to him and that has never been a secret.

"The payment that she received, she said she never questioned it and she regarded it as a gift, she can't even remember what it was used for because it was a long time ago.

"I am sure if you look deeper into his bank statements there would have been other payments made to her as well and that to her it is nothing she needed to question, it would have been her requesting something and he would have paid it and that is it."

"There was no way that costing could have been that much. Those were smaller venues"

Corruption Watch executive director David Lewis said MaNtuli should account for the payment that was made by Ntuli into her account.

"It is something that has to be explained. It is not enough to just say that it was a gift," said Lewis.

Bouwer, who rose to fame in the '90s as an actor in the popular soapie Generations, said she had paid Ntuli as a subcontractor as per their agreement.

"We had a contract with him and he delivered on everything that we asked for and we paid him accordingly. I wouldn't claim that somebody delivered on something that he didn't deliver on. I am very forthcoming with information because I have nothing to hide ... I am not aware of the Hawks' investigation. I will have to be careful about what I relay in ... public."
Some of the money was allegedly later paid from Mabheleni Ntuli's account to Nompumelelo "MaNtuli" Ntuli-Zuma


She said she had co-operated with the Treasury and submitted documents regarding her subcontractors to the Mpumalanga provincial government. "I think in the beginning stages of there being some rumours about impropriety, National Treasury did get in touch with us ... What I said was that I submitted the documents to the province, which were the people I was contracted to. I gave the information to the province to comply. What happened subsequent to that, I don't get involved," said Bouwer.

But a government insider with intimate knowledge of the case being investigated told the Sunday Times that there had been no co-operation from the provincial government when the Treasury requested documents.

The Sunday Times understands there was some political pressure for Bouwer to work with the politically connected Durban businessman.

But Bouwer denied this, saying that Ntuli was the only person who could provide the infrastructure she needed at short notice.

It is understood that Ntuli threw his weight around during the events, mentioning his political connections.

A source who wished to remain anonymous said the R18-million charged by Ntuli was inflated and that the events should have cost much less. "There was no way that costing could have been that much. Those were smaller venues,"
