Julius Malema who leads the Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), an opposition party in South Africa, has said he is considering “going to Zimbabwe” to get the COVID-19 vaccine.
Malema said South Africa’s vaccination programme was way behind that of Zimbabwe attributing the sluggish pace at which South Africa is moving to president Cyril Ramaphosa’s poor business approach to the pandemic.
_Who would have thought that Zimbabwe can be better than South Africa with something?_
_In this day and age, Zimbabwe is beating South Africa when it comes to vaccination._
_Let me tell you, people with money are going to Zimbabwe to be vaccinated if you do not know._
_People are leaving South Africa to be vaccinated in Zimbabwe because Zimbabwe is using all the types of vaccines and people are going there._
_Here we are stuck with a businessman of a President who looks at profit before the lives of people._
Malema said he was also considering getting the COVID-19 vaccine in Zimbabwe as there are no prospects of being vaccinated anytime soon in South Africa. Watch the video below for more.
Zimbabwe rolled out the vaccination programme amid world scepticism over the efficacy of vaccines and is pushing towards achieving herd immunity.
Nearly 700 000 people have received their first doses of the vaccine and the government is planning to order more doses.
