The Democratic Alliance (DA) has opened a criminal case against Health Minister Zweli Mkhize.

The opposition party says it will stop at nothing until Mkhize is held accountable following the allegations of corruption.

A report by the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) has alleged Mkhize to be involved in the irregular awarding of a contract to a communications company owned by his acquaintanceS.

DA spokesperson, Siviwe Gwarube, says such damning allegations leveled against the minister cannot be ignored.

Although  the SIU says the investigation is still ongoing but Gwarube says they want the minister to step aside.

Meanwhile, Mkhize’s problems continue as the office of the Public Protector is planning to open a case of contempt of court against him.

The office of the Public Protector has announced that it will be initiating contempt proceedings against Minister Mkhize this week following his failure on three occasions to honour a subpoena.

Mkhize was subpoenaed to give evidence and produce documents for an investigation into allegations of undue delays by the national department and also implementing the recommendations of the report of the Clinical Associate National Task Team 2017.
