Auditor-general Kimi Makwetu will on Wednesday release Covid-19 relief fund audit findings.

The Covid-19 relief funds have been a contentious issue in the country with many South Africans expressing dissatisfaction about being excluded from financial support from the government as a result of maladministration.

The government reprioritized R500bn to help South Africans during the pandemic, but concerned citizens have criticised the state, saying the funds were spent irregularly.  


Transnet's Phelophepa health-care train has made its way to Gauteng for the first time in its 26 years of operation due to the spike of Covid-19 cases in the province. The train, which brings health-care to the doorsteps of vulnerable communities, had previously travelled to every province in South Africa except Gauteng.
