The High Court in Johannesburg lifted the curatorship of medical scheme Bonitas on Tuesday, the group said in a statement.

“We are now ready to advance as a reputable, sound and stable medical aid, offering our members quality healthcare and affordability, minus the frills and fancies,” principal officer Bobby Ramasia said.

The development paved the way for the scheme to start on a clean page.

Curator Molokomme Joseph Maluleke would vacate his office at midnight on Friday in terms of the court order.

Bonitas extended its gratitude to the curator for his leadership and guidance during his term of office. - Sapa
