Zimbabwean President Emmerson Mnangagwa has given Zimbabweans an ultimatum to take the Covid-19 jab vaccine or face the consequences.
In a video seen by ZiMetro News that has since gone viral, Mnangagwa is heard saying “Ichasvika nguva yekuti kana usina kubayiwa hauwane basa, kana usina kubayiwa haukwire Zupco, saka otoona kuti oitasei”.
“There will come a time when if you haven’t been vaccinated you’re not going to get a Government Job and you won’t be able to use public government transport either.”
This has been characterized as an attack on those who have been speaking against the vaccination saying, “the vaccines are not safe”.
Zimbabwe received 200 000 vaccines ‘Sinopharm’ donated by the Chinese government in the fight against the coronavirus.
At the same time that Zimbabwean Government is receiving vaccines from Eastern or Western countries, South Africa has reportedly sold AstraZeneca vaccine which they say offered minimal protection against mild to moderate illness from the 501Y.V2 variants are dominant in the country.
One million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine, produced by the Serum Institute of India, landed in the country last week, and another 500,000 are due to arrive in the coming weeks.
