He told journalists in Tembisa that there were still issues that needed finalisation regarding suspended Health Minister Zweli Mkhize.

Mkhize was placed on suspension after his close associates benefitted from a tender with his department.

He has also recently been personally tied to the contract which his son also benefitted from.

The president said he needed more time: “There are still some finalisations of certain aspects, which we are going to get. So, I am looking at it and I am studying it. So, allow me the time and space to look at that.”
