Yvonne Chaka Chaka dragged for views on Covid-19
Briefly News reported that legendary Mzansi singer Yvonne Chaka Chaka has been dragged on social media for her views on the Covid-19 vaccine. The songstress took to Twitter on 18 January and asked why there's still no vaccine for malaria and HIV.
The Umqombothi hitmaker questioned why it only took a few months for scientists to develop a vaccine for coronavirus while other deadly diseases such as HIV and malaria have been around for way longer than Covid-19.
"Vaccine, vaccine. We still don’t have one for malaria none for HIV but in few months we have one for Covid, can someone tell me how possible is this? @WHO @EU_Partnerships @UN @NEPAD_Agency @PresidencyZA @Davos @unwomenafrica."
The musician's tweet rubbed many of her followers the wrong way. Most of them dragged her for her opinion on the vaccine while others agreed with her.
