Makhura said the team of experts will be working to rebuild the department of health. He said following the PPE scandal, there were signs corruption was resurging.
“Corruption is rearing its ugly and stubborn head again. It was never gone because it was a work in progress, but we are deeply concerned that in parts of our provincial government, some of our departments, some of our agencies, there is regression,” said Makhura.
He said his government was, however, not going to take it lying down and would tackle corruption in every department and government agency.
Makhura said his government had relocated the provincial forensic unit to his office and boosted its capacity.
“As I speak, they have finalised 73 forensic investigations and in 66 of those, cases have been opened and referred to law enforcement agencies for criminal prosecution and recovery of public funds,” he said.
