Share with your network! Health Minister Zweli Mkhize has apologised for the fallout from the Digital Vibes scandal – as calls for his sacking grow louder.
The Minister answered questions from journalists during a visit to health facilities in the Northern Cape on Tuesday.
He says his intention is not to dodge questions but to make sure he fully cooperates with an SIU investigation into the multi-million Rand communications contract awarded to people he’s described, as just his comrades.
President Cyril Ramaphosa has placed Mhkize on special leave, and Tourism Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane will serve as acting Health Minister.
The Director General has also issued a statement reassuring the nation that the nation remains committed and capable of managing the COVID-19 pandemic.
ANC veteran Mavuso Msimang says it would have been better for Mkhize’s image if he resigned with the Digital Vibes allegations first surfaced.
He says the scandal has tarnished the party’s image even further.
