Mboweni calls for COVID-19 provincial health contracts to be published

The Democratic Alliance (DA) welcomed the call by the Minister of Finance, Tito Mboweni, calling on all provincial Health MECs to publish the list of all companies that have been awarded personal protective equipment (PPE) tenders related to COVID-19 in their provinces.

This comes after it was revealed that 2 billion rands PPE contracts in Gauteng have allegedly been awarded to companies, which are politically connected.

The party’s Siviwe Gwarube, says the party trusts that this will not remain a mere call but that all MECs will immediately act to publish these details without any further delay.
