Contract Awarded To Digital Vibes Was Irregular – Mkhize

An investigation has found that a multi-million-rand contract between the health department and Digital Vibes was irregular.

The company is said to have benefitted R150-million from the contract.

Among the findings were a conflict of interest and contravention of the tender bidding process.

Health Minister Zweli Mkhize said his department is promising to tackle corruption.

“I can also confirm that consequence management that is taking disciplinary action against all implicated individuals is underway,” Mkhize said.

Mkhize also said he’s not involved with the Digital Vibes company at any level.

The company was awarded a multi-million-rand tender by his department.

Mkhize said while he previously worked with Tahera Mather and Naadhira Mitha — who are employed at Digital Vibes — they’re not his friends.
