"Thank you EFF": Sahpra approves the Chinese Sinovac vaccine, EFF thanks Mzansi
The Economic Freedom Fighters have taken to social media to thank their supporters for their efforts in helping to raise awareness about the Chinese Sinovac vaccine.
"We thank the ground forces and all those who took the time to selflessly march to the Sahpra offices demanding vaccination."

Social media users take to the internet to celebrate the approval of the Sinovac and to thank the EFF
