South Africa’s former health minister Zweli Mkhize has again been implicated in corruption. The Daily Maverick reports that Mkhize, who resigned last year after being linked to the R150-million Digital Vibes communications tender, is linked to corruption involving the Unemployment Insurance Fund. The report states that a company owned by well-known PIC dealmaker Lawrence Mulaudzi, in 2018, paid R5.9 million into a transfer attorney’s account for an upmarket townhouse bought by Mkhize’s ZLM Trust. The trust sold the property in February 2021 for just over R6 million.
