News Description

DAILY MAVERICK The KwaZulu-Natal Department of Health has again been taken to task on poor contract management and allegations of tender irregularities — this time by Public Protector Busisiwe Mkhwebane. Sibongile Zungu, Health Minister Dr Zweli Mkhize’s special adviser on NHI, and previous head of the province’s health department, came in for particular criticism. The public protector released a report last week with damning findings against the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Health over alleged tender irregularities in the procurement of four mobile health units. The units cost taxpayers about R61-million to lease between 2012 and 2017. The department paid for four units, but secured only two.
