At the time that Sizwe was being set-up, the dream of establishing a corresponding private clinic was also eventually realised in 1985. Discrimination prevailed and blacks were put into private wards to keep them separated from whites – at a greater cost than they could afford. Through hardships, Lesedi in Soweto, was formed. The clinic was built on land which had been earmarked for an abattoir.
To this day, Kwacha is part land shareholder. This marked the turn-around in access to private healthcare. Clinix Health Group was started in 1992. The company opened its first hospital, Clinix Botshelong Empilweni Private Hospital, in April 1994. In 2016, Lesedi Clinic was renamed Dr SK Matseke Memorial Hospital in honour of an astute contributor to education in Soweto.
