Steenhuisen calls out Ramaphosa’s government
As tighter lockdown restrictions become increasingly likely as the third wave of COVID-19, cases continues to surge across the country.
Democratic Alliance (DA) leader John Steenhuisen has lashed out President Cyril Ramaphosa, saying that perpetual lockdowns are the result of his administrations failure to vaccinate the population.
With only 2.2 million South Africans having received the jab, government is well short of its promised mandate, and Steenhuisen said on Wednesday that the efforts to roll out the vaccine have been “secretive, slow, disorganised and fatal”.
