The Democratic Alliance (DA) is calling on the Surgeon General of South Africa, Lieutenant-General Zola Dabula, to urgently give clarity to public on the health status of Deputy President David Mabuza

He was due in the National assembly on Thursday to answer oral questions from MPs as well as an urgent question on the status of Covid-19 corruption investigations.

According to DA, Mabuza’s office has sent an excuse to Parliament, once again stating his ill health as the reason for non-attendance.

The party said sessions on Thursday is essential in ensuring the Executive is held to account, and as Leader of Government Business in Parliament.

The Deputy President must avail himself to give account of the brazen Covid-19 corruption of his party, the ANC, and government.

“This is especially important as it is not the first time the Deputy President has used ill health as an excuse to miss Parliamentary question sessions,” said DA.

Earlier this year Mabuza missed meetings of the National Council of Provinces and the National Assembly due to ill health.

But, whenever his office is questioned on the matter, the standard response is that there is nothing wrong with the Deputy President’s health.

“So, where is DD Mabuza? He is either seriously ill, and his office is trying to hide that fact, or there is nothing wrong with him and he is simply trying to avoid accountability by claiming ill health whenever he is called to Parliament,” said DA.

The DA said South Africans deserve an explanation on Deputy President.
