In the Digital Vibes saga matter, Zweli Mkhize asks the court to set aside SIU findings.

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa – Former Health Minister Zweli Mkhize wants the findings of the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) investigating the irregular Digital Vibes tender set aside.

Mkhize claimed in court papers filed on 14 October in Johannesburg's High Court that the SIU approached the case with a preconceived outcome against him.

The tender, which was granted to a company named Digital Vibes fronting on behalf of the minister's close allies, benefited the minister's close associates.

The minister's family was discovered to have benefited financially from the multimillion-rand contract.

Mkhize claimed that the SIU's findings, conclusions, and recommendations had far-reaching personal implications for him, including his reputation, employment as a public servant, and political career.

The Special Investigating Unit (SIU) has handed over its report, which recommends that 18 people be prosecuted with mishandling of the R150 million contract with Digital Vibes, including Anban Pillay of the Health Department.

"There is additional labor in that you must be able to show beyond a reasonable doubt each aspect on which you make an allegation." That's why, when we get a report that focuses on the civil side, we know we have to look at the criminal aspects, counts, and other things before we can move forward,"
