mat­ter, said the deep throat.

The tipster said when she ar­rived at Mil­park, Dali paid over R100 000 for her ad­mis­sion as she did not have med­i­cal aid.

He later took her to a re­hab cen­tre in Hyde Park,” said the mole.

The source said Dali later re­moved Tse­lane from the cen­tre af­ter its man­age­ment com­plained that she threat­ened to ex­pose them for ill-treat­ing her.

The in­for­mant said Dali re­moved her from the cen­tre and took her to Alon In­ter­na­tional, which was also known as Alon Farm.

There are prob­lems there as well. She often com­plains of ill- treat­ment by the staff and wants out of the place,” said the source.

An­other source said Dali wanted to take her to a North­ern Cape re­hab cen­tre but changed his mind be­cause of the dis­tance.

I just learnt she might be forced to leave the place, not only be­cause Dali can no longer af­ford to pay for her, but also be­cause of her at­ti­tude to­wards the staff. She freaks out and yells at them some­times and they are fed up with her,” said the source.

Pinel con­firmed Tse­lane com­plained of ill-treat­ment.

We have al­ways been good to Tse­lane. I don t know why she would say some­thing like that. Our cen­tre didn t have the ca­pac­ity to deal with her chal­lenges but we tried our best and she has im­proved tremen­dously since she came here,” he said.

Pinel said Tse­lane s funds ran dry late last year and their plea to Dali to res­cue her fell on deaf ears.

We were told that funds would come from other peo­ple but noth­ing hap­pened.

Even­tu­ally a prom­i­nent per­son, whose name I would not re­veal, de­posited the cash but now there is noth­ing left,” he said.

Pinel con­firmed Tse­lane was ad­mit­ted at Mil­park and Char­lotte Max­eke hospi­tals and later to a re­hab cen­tre in Hyde Park.

We heard she was not happy with the ser­vices at that hos­pi­tal, that is why she was taken to a pri­vate hos­pi­tal. And when she felt bet­ter she was taken to a cen­tre some­where in Johannesburg and, later, here,” he said.

Pinel said he did not know what in­duced her stress but al­leged that she ig­nored her doc­tor s ad­vice to change her life­style, or else she would suf­fer a stroke.
