During last week's family meeting, President Cyril Ramaphosa left the country in Covid-19 Alert Level 1. This is against what the majority of the population expected. Business and entertainment sectors were holding their hearts with hands praying that the president should not lockdown the economy again. Many people had a sigh of relief when the heard that the country should remain in alert level 1.
When continuing with his address, Ramaphosa stated that he appointed the committee which would be working on the means that can be used to make Covid-19 vaccination mandatory. This idea brought about by Dr Joe Phahlaa after his appointment. The Constitution of the Republic of South Africa states that, people have a freedom of choice and therefore, it could be said that mandatory vaccination is unlawful.
Considering what the Constitution prescribes, the human rights organization, Afroforum wrote to President Ramaphosa informing him that, if he and his cabinet may proceed with the idea of mandatory vaccination, Afroforum will challenge that in court. Afroforum considers mandatory vaccination as unlawful and unconstitutional.
The tweets are circulating showing that, some fraction of the population is not happy about the decision to make Covod-19 vaccination mandatory (see above). Based on the tweet above, it seems as if there are people who are planning to stand against the mandatory vaccination. Similarly, one of the Roman Catholic bishops spoke his mind about the mandatory vaccination saying, no king or president has the right to decide what comes into our bodies but ourselves.
Do you think Afroforum has the prospects of winning the case if the president and his cabinet may decide to proceed with mandatory vaccination? Please share your views and don't forget to follow me in order to get more interesting news.
