I will not go into hiding, NHIF scandal whistleblower says despite alleged death threats
The whistle blower behind the National Hospital Insurance Fund (NHIF) hospitals scandal, Salesio Thuranira, says he will not go into exile despite claims that his life is in danger.
According to Thuranira, close family and friends have advised him to go into hiding suggesting he seeks asylum in neighbouring countries following the NTV exposé but he is adamant.
“I will not run away. The problem is a part of us and I have to stay here to find a solution. To me running away will be cowardice. I am not scared provided the government gives me security,” he said.
He urged the government to stay objective even as investigations into the NHIF scandal are underway.
“I want to call on the government to be sincere. Investigations should be conducted thoroughly and not subjective to protect individuals involved in the NHIF scandal. They should be objective in assisting the people that have been affected by this scandal to get justice,” he said.
He added that his unwillingness to leave the country was also due to people supposedly approaching him with information concerning scandals in other governmental institutions and private insurance companies.
