Task team to investigate SANDF drug purchase

South African National Defence Force (SANDF) member

Defence Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula has appointed a task team to investigate allegations of wrongdoing involving the SANDF.

The case relates to the purchase of the Cuban drug, Heberon Interferon, worth over R200-million.

The medication was bought in April last year without following regulatory and proper procurement procedures.

The SANDF wanted to give the drug to its members deployed on the frontline in the fight against COVID-19.

The medicine is not registered with the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority, which means it cannot be used.

The task team is expected to finalize its report in six months.
