While the Special Investigating Unit's (SIU) report on Digital Vibes seemingly gathers dust on President Cyril Ramaphosa's desk, Parliament's hands are tied in dealing with it.

Furthermore, the Portfolio Committee on Health can't interrogate Minister of Health Zweli Mkhize while he is on "special leave", and while Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane is acting in his position.

This was the advice chairperson of the Portfolio Committee on Health, Sibongiseni Dhlomo, received from the house chairperson, or chair of chairs as he is known in Parliament, Cedric Frolick, and relayed to the committee on Wednesday.
