What are we vaccinating for?" | Mzansi reacts to Joe Phaahla's fifth-wave revelation.


When the Covid-19 vaccines were first administered in South Africa, Ramaphosa assured the entire country that no one would be forced to vaccinate and that after receiving the vaccine, you would be immune to the virus and would not need to be vaccinated again. He also promised that once everyone has been vaccinated, the country will be free of the disease.

However, it looks like Ramaphosa claimed all of this to further his vendetta against mandated immunizations, as none of his claims appear to be accurate, and South Africans are becoming increasingly irritated. People who had been vaccinated were furious not long ago when they were told that vaccines lose their potency after 6 months, and Joe Phaahla returned with another blockbuster yesterday.

In an interview with SABC television yesterday, the health minister revealed that the new variation may cause South Africa to reach the fifth wave sooner than planned. By the end of April or the beginning of May, he warned, Mzansi could witness an increase in cases.

As we approach winter and flu season, he believes it could be exacerbated by cold weather conditions. "We absolutely predict a wave around May, when winter begins, if there is no variation of real concern fairly soon." Because of the cold, people begin to gather indoors. "It's also the start of flu season," Phaahla adds.

However, this was much more distressing to hear for those who had already been vaccinated, as they proceeded to inquire as to what they were vaccinating for, as it seemed that there will be more and more lethal waves in the future. Others claimed that Phaahla and Ramaphosa were stealing covid monies by posing as covid vaccination purchasers.

Take a look at how this tweet was received in the comments section below:


I don't blame those who are rioting in the comments area because we can't keep being stabbed every day, yet nothing is improving. I also feel those who said Phaahla and Ramaphosa may benefit from the Covid-19 monies were mistaken.
