Sweet and sour source

Sweet and sour source

noseweek's senior reporter's lunch with purported whistleblower, Dr Zola Ntshona, left him a grand or so out of pocket and with some food for thought.

Dr Nokuzola Ntshona called the noseweek offices in mid December brimming with stories she said no-one had heard yet, about Health Minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang, President Mbeki and various other high-profile personalities. The Sunday Times exposé had been her story, she said - and she had much more, with evidence to back up her claims.

According to the somewhat confusing article in the Sunday Times
East London Hospital Complex CEO Vuyo Mosana asked his deputy, Dr Nokuzola Ntshona on August 8 to draw up a comprehensive list of the hospitals’ deficiencies and how they should be fixed.

It is not clear from the article but it is implied that this is the information that was sent in a letter to President Mbeki.

Mosana declined to comment on Ntshona’s claims as “we are still investigating a case of giving inaccurate information to the media”.

Perhaps Mosana was correct in suspending her after all. Weird.

Good god. Shows that the mainstream media would do well to check out the veracity of 'sources'...
