The Sakeliga Group and four other business organizations have written to the President to state their opposition to mandatory vaccination. The group said President Cyril Ramaphosa made a false and comprehensive statement about the company's support for the country's vaccine obligations.

SAKELIGA calls the president Pietle Roux, Executive Director of Sakeliga, said a letter to COGTA and the Minister of Health indicated that the group's clients were opposed to government-led compulsory vaccination policies and surveillance mechanisms.

According to the group, these mechanisms include vaccination records and disciplinary action against unvaccinated people, as well as regulations that force companies to support and implement compulsory vaccination measures.

"This letter follows a false statement made by the President in a speech televised on November 28, in which, among other things," such measures (state-led policy of compulsory vaccination) )

There is a broad consensus on the need for "economy". "But the comprehensive statement that the'economy'supports national vaccination and surveillance obligation policies is wrong, misunderstanding the reality, and at least points to serious flaws in the government's consultation process.

"It is," said Le Lou. Sakeliga said there was great opposition and disagreement with forced vaccination, both in business and in society. Other organizations mentioned in the letter are Agri North West, South African National Employers Association (NEASA), SAAI and TLUSA. "We pay attention to the fact that our customers have not been consulted and that the process is flawed.

"Therefore, it is our client's concern that the state will involve our clients in the advisory process to ensure that all perspectives are recognized and considered," the letter said. Sakeriga said he was in favor of a voluntary vaccination campaign and the end of the blockade.
