The publication included information gotten from all provinces, national departments and over 70 public entities.

The government made it known that the information is in accordance with the directive issued by President Cyril Rampahosa.

Ramaphosa instructed the submission of full information on COVID-19 tenders by the departments. The information was submitted to a ministerial team convened by Ronald Lamola, Justice and Correctional Services.

When the claims ensued, Khusela Diko, presidency spokesperson and Bandile Masuku, Gauteng Health MEC decided to go on a special leave of absence pending completion of investigations.
