IN FULL: Ramaphosa releases SIU report into Digital Vibes
President Cyril Ramaphosa received the report in July and subsequently sent notices to all those referred to in the report, giving them an opportunity to object to its publication.
CAPE TOWN/JOHANNESBURG - The president on Wednesday authorised the publication of the Special Investigating Unit's report on the Digital Vibes scandal.
President Cyril Ramaphosa received the findings in July.
He subsequently sent notices to all those referred to in the report, giving them an opportunity to object to its publication.
The Presidency explains this was done in the interests of fairness and in terms of the Promotion of Access to Information Act.
The 100-page report outlines how millions of your taxpayer rands were irregularly paid to Digital Vibes and were squandered on repairs to former Health Minister Zweli Mkhize's home and a Land Cruiser for his son among many other things.
The SIU notes that during a briefing in May, Mkhize denied that he or his family benefitted from the dogy deal; the report states this denial was a lie.
The report also found Digital Vibes failed to declare company tax and VAT to Sars.
