ANC NEC member Naledi Pandor has called on South Africans to come out in numbers and vaccinate. She was speaking in Emfuleni on the Cape Flats where she was campaigning for the ANC ahead of local government elections next month.

The party’s door-to-door campaign on Friday, coincides with the launch of the Vooma Vaccination Weekend Campaign, to speed up the vaccination process.

Pandor says failure to vaccinate in numbers will prolong the lockdown and plunge people further into poverty and suffering.

“With respect to vaccination, we want to encourage South Africans to really come out in large numbers to vaccinate because the more people are vaccinating, the more chances we have of getting rid of these masks and people actually not getting sick and dying,” says Pandor.
