Mkhize disputes media reports that Digital Vibes saga is a political ploy against him

Health Minister Zweli Mkhize has clarified he does not believe the Digital Vibes investigation has anything to do with African National Congress politics or the party's presidential race in 2022.

Mkhize said this following an article published by the Sunday Times, which said he had told his allies the probe was a ploy to eliminate him from contesting.

The department said the Minister remains committed to cooperating with the investigation process as it proceeds, and will ensure that the department continues to do its work in rolling out the vaccination programme and putting the necessary measures in place to mitigate the risk of the third wave.
