It is becoming clearer by the day that very senior pThe United Democratic Movement (UDM) commends the Special Investigating Unit (SIU) for the thorough job on their investigation of the National Department of Health (NDOH) and Digital Vibes contracts.

The fourteen recommendations read like a “But, these are the fundamentals”-list that ministers and officials should do in any event, rather than anything new the SIU has thought of. Furthermore, they should rather be a stern warning, not only to the NDOH but to all government departments and municipalities.eople have their hands in the cookie jar and no matter which direction you look – up or down, left or right – senior government leaders are either embroiled in or tainted by corruption or alleged corruption.

The questions regarding the SIU report that now remain are that, if government coffers have been raided to the tune of billions and billions of rands and some money (also from Bosasa and others) was even allegedly channelled to the ruling party, what steps will be taken to recoup the stolen monies, and will there be any prosecutions?
