Tanzania Opposition Wants President Samia To Make COVID-19 Vaccination Mandatory

The main opposition party in Tanzania Chama cha Demokrasia na Maendeleo (CHADEMA) has urged the current president Her Excellency Samia Suluhu Hassan to make the COVID-19 vaccination exercise mandatory for every citizen to curb the rate of infection in the country.

Speaking during a press conference held in Mwanza this Monday afternoon, the party Chairman Freeman Mbowe pointed out that it was wrong to make the exercise voluntary arguing that it is against the procedures provided by the World Health Organization (WHO).

Mbowe also added that the COVID-19 is a killer disease and should be taken very seriously.

"Serikali inasema chanjo ya Covid-19 ni hiari ya Mtu. akatayependa ndiye apewe, huu sio utaratibu wa WHO, kwa wenzetu chanjo ni lazima, tunamuomba Mama Samia aweke utaratibu wa chanjo kuwa lazima na inapaswa itolewe kwa kila Mtu, huu ugonjwa unaua” Mbowe stated.

According to the CHADEMA boss, the majority of Tanzanians cannot afford to pay the required COVID-19 fee when hospitalized urging the government to step up and cater for the treatment and other medical charges imposed on poor Tanzanians.
