No one in SA should be forced to take vaccine against their will: Julius Malema

Economic Freedom Fighters leader Julius Malema

The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema has reiterated his stance on the possibility of mandatory COVID-19 vaccination. He says no one in South Africa should be forced to take the vaccine against their will.

Some institutions of higher learning have already decided that students will have to take the vaccine before admission to study.

Speaking during a visit to the Phansi family in Kagiso on Gauteng’s West Rand, where he handed over a new house, Malema says while mandatory vaccination can’t be allowed, South Africans should still be encouraged to take the jab.

“All we can do is to encourage them to do the right thing and the right thing is to vaccinate. Let’s not win people over through bullying; we need to persuade the people, that’s what democracy is about. Let’s convince people to vaccinate,” Malema explains.

Meanwhile, Malema says negligence was the main cause of the recent fire that gutted the National Assembly buildings at Parliament.

He says the arrest of the so-called suspect, Zandile Mafe is being used as a scapegoat to divert attention from the government’s negligence.

“Do you think in your rightful mind, a person would burn parliament and then goes and sleep next to where you have committed a crime… there’s no such thing. So I think more than anything guys, it’s negligence. They’ve not maintained parliament, you may find out the rats have eaten the cables, that why it started burning from the roof and there was a spark and that spark caused the fire.” Malema says.
