The Democratic Alliance says Deputy President David Mabuza is not the man for the job to oversee the rollout programme of COVID-19 vaccines.

This follows a special cabinet meeting to discuss the progress report from the National Coronavirus Command Council, where cabinet approved the setting up of the Inter Ministerial Committee overseeing the vaccine rollout, which is it be chaired by Mabuza.

The party says government has fundamentally failed the people of South Africa, by their own admission, in their bungling of this vaccine process and the appointment of Mabuza is yet another example of this government not prioritising the health and safety of its people.

DA Shadow Minister of Health, Siviwe Gwarube says they do not believe that the Deputy President is a competent and reliable figure to oversee this process as he has a history of failure in governance.

“It is also unclear why, of all the people in the Executive, he would choose somebody who has not done an iota of work on this crisis. This is nothing more than ANC factional battles playing itself out,” adds Gwarube.
