PRESIDENT Emerson Mnangagwa has warned that those who refuse to get the vaccine voluntarily might in the future find it difficult to get employment opportunities and to board public transport in the near future.
Speaking during the launch of the irrigation scheme, President Mnangagwa said even though taking the vaccine was voluntary.
“My cabinet and myself in the next two weeks when the next consignment comes, i will be vaccinated and you will be vaccinated tighter with my ministers. You are not forced to be vaccinated but time shall come when those who are not vaccinated won’t get jobs and won’t be able to board ZUPCO buses. So you have to see what you can do now and the vaccines are free,” said President Mnangagwa.
