THE OHSC IS SADDENED BY THE PASSING OF THE CMS CHAIRPERSON, DR CLARENCE MINI
The Office of Health Standards Compliance (OHSC) learnt with great shock and deeply saddened by the passing of the Chairperson of the Council of Medical Schemes (CMS), Dr Clarence Mini.
Dr Mini was a great servant of the nation in the medical fraternity, steadfast, and always shared the utmost insight in the field with anyone he would strike a conversation with. He will forever be celebrated for having served the medical industry with great distinction and humility in many roles and various capacities over the years. Dr Mini’s contribution to the liberation struggle during the darkest hour in our country is loaded.
Dr Mini demonstrated a deep knowledge of the medical field and abundantly supported the growth of South Africa’s health system despite its challenges. His role as the Chairperson of the CMS was critical, particularly in the dawn of South Africa’s universal health coverage.
His passing comes at a time when the country and the world are fighting Covid-19 pandemic that is ravaging the world.
The OHSC wishes to convey sincere, heartfelt condolences to Dr Mini’s family, his friends, colleagues and the entire medical fraternity across the country and internationally, as well as all staff of the Council for Medical Schemes.
May all who served with him always hold fond memories of his life and legacy.
