President Cyril Ramaphosa has urged the public to be patient with him on the Special Investigating Unit report involving Health Minister Dr Zweli Mkhize and service provider Digital Vibes.
Currently, Mkhize is on special leave to allow him to attend to allegations of tender irregularities between his department and the communications company.
Speaking to the media during his visit to the vaccination site in Tembisa east of Johannesburg, Ramaphosa said he was still finalising a few aspects before commenting on the report.

Meanwhile, President Ramaphosa has again called on his ministers to desist from engaging in public spats.
He says as government they need to speak with one voice. This follows public squabbles between State Security Minister Ayanda Dlodlo and Police Minister Bheki Cele over an intelligence report related to the recent unrest in Kwazulu-Natal and Gauteng.
Dlodlo said that they had provided the report to Cele. However, Cele denied receiving such a report ahead of the unrest.
Addressing the media during his visit to the Discovery Vaccination site in Midrand north of Johannesburg, Ramaphosa said this must stop.
“Let’s stop the squabbling in public. Obviously, it was driven by their own understanding and explanation. But as government, we have to be coherent. We have got to have a single message. And that has been sent out very clearly. From now on, you will see coherence in government in terms of the messages.”
