Yaum Un Jadeed – Questions raised over veracity of Min Zweli Mkhize claims in the Digital Vibe saga With Guest Tessa Dooms – Political Analyst & Director at Jorsoro Consulting

Political analyst Tessa Dooms has raised questions over the veracity of claims made by Health Minister Dr Zweli Mkhize after he denied any involvement in the awarding of an irregular multi-million-rand contract by his department. A Special Investigating Unit (SIU) probe has found that the Department of Health’s dealings with communications company, Digital Vibes, were irregular. It follows newspaper reports that Digital Vibes was paid R150 million for services related to the National Health Insurance (INH) and government’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Mkhize’s former personal spokesperson Tahera Mather and former personal assistant, Naadhira Mitha, are reported to control the company – although the two are not listed as directors.
