Mkhize’s family wants to pay back money used to buy son’s car

Health Minister, Zweli Mkhize’s family wants to pay back the money that was used by Digital Vibes Company to buy a car for their son. Digital Vibes had bought Mkhize’s son a bakkie after scoring a communication’s tender worth R150 million from the Health Department despite not meeting the requirements.  Minister said he spoke with his family and agreed to return the funds

“The kind of relationship that was involved was inappropriate, and then of course at the end of it, all those funds need to be returned. The issue was that it was based on a personal relationship as adults and as we have children at this age, they proceed to have relationships which we were not necessarily aware as to what extent they go,” said the minister.

On Tuesday, President Cyril Ramaphosa placed Mkhize on special leave”This period of special leave will enable the minister to attend to allegations and investigations concerning contracts between the Department of Health and a service provider, Digital Vibes,” the Presidency said in a short statement released on Tuesday afternoon.

Meanwhile, Tourism Minister, Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane will take over the reins with immediate effect.
