- Mzansi social media users are also happy about the vaccines but other people are not too convinced about the rollout yet
After the SA Health Products Regulatory Authority (SAHPRA) announced that it had approved the Sinovac vaccine for use in SA, musician Riky Rick thanked the EFF and its leader Julius Malema for marching to the regulator's offices to demand more Covid-19 jabs.
On Saturday, SAHPRA announced that it had authorized the use of CoronaVac for emergency purposes. The decision came a week after the EFF marched to the regulator demanding that CoronaVac and other vaccines be approved for use in South Africa's vaccine rollout program.
“Danko Julius Malema and The Fighters for marching on behalf of the people of SA. The power belongs to the people,” wrote Riky Rick on social media.

Riky Rick claims that vaccinating at clubs and other events will help slow down the virus
Briefly News previously reported that Riky Rick has taken to social media to share his strategy on how to improve the vaccine rollout without shutting down the entertainment industry.
The rapper proposed that the government vaccinate people at these ‘super spreader’ events to prevent further transmission of the coronavirus. The rapper said:
“Restaurants, Event Promoters, Sports Leagues ie “Mass Gatherers” ... have HUGE databases of people who are crying to be vaccinated just to continue those activities. GOVERNMENT should be working with these industries on the VAX ROLLOUT. TURN SUPER SPREADERS INTO SUPER VAXERS.”
