The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema says the party is going to picket outside the South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) headquarters in Pretoria on Friday 25 June.
EFF president was addressing EFF members at the Hoërskool Uitsig in Centurion, Pretoria, commemorating the June 1976 student up-risings.
Malema says they want the government to use the Chinese and Russian vaccine in the country.
“We think those vaccines are the solution, no one is going to stop us. No lockdown regulations are going to stop us. From today we don’t listen to what Ramaphosa says about corona until he gives us the vaccine to vaccinate our people,” he said.
He says government has prioritized profit instead of the people.
“After picketing there next week Friday, they have seven days to approve the Russian vaccine and the Chinese vaccine, failure to do so, will do stage sleep in at the house of the CEO of SAHPRA until they protect us, it is personal like that. We are going to her house, we want her to approve Sputnik and Chinese vaccine to add on what we have now,” Malema added.
