SIU report: South Africans need to know

Ever since minister Mkhize resigned from his position of Minister of Health, there has not been much information about the Digital Vibes contract that got him into problem at the first place.

It has now emerged that the report from the SIU had damning information about Zweli Mkhize hence he dicided to resign as the minister. According to the SIU report, the former Minister failed to execute his duties in compliance to the constitution general oversight.

Former Minister behaviour might have caused irregular and waiteful expenditure. There was a possible conflict of interest when awarding the contract to Digital Vibes, but the former minister went ahead and ebsured that Digital Vibes gets that contract.

There are seven other officials that have shown non compliance in respect of the SCM processes and contravention of section 34 of the PMFA. It is believed that the president is currently considering to implement the recommendations made by the SIU. The NDoH are in the process to draft charges.

It is about time that something is done about this Digital Vibes Saga. It has been long overdue. The fact that the former minister of health Zweli Mkhize has resigned, should not be the end of the case. Millions of Rands were given to people on a silver platter and this is the money that belongs to poor South African tax payers. We really need to see accountability this time around.

Dr Zweli Mkhize and his family benefited from this digital vibes saga and he must take responsibility of his own actions. There really should be consequence management or there will be government officials who do as they please because they know that they will get away with just a suspension or in some cases, nothing ever happens.

The SIU should also ensures that they recover those stolen millions that belongs to the South Africans.
