BPSA concerned over a number of vaccines to be allocated for Limpopo Province

SEKHUKHUNE – The Bolsheviks Party of South Africa, an opposition party in Sekhukhune District Municipality (SDM) received with concern the announcement that Limpopo province would be allocated 44 000 of the 1 million vaccines that arrived in the country from Oxford-AstraZeneca in India on Monday, 01 January 2021.

The party said the announcement that Limpopo would only be allocated 44 000 of the first batch of 1 million vaccines was somewhat a bitter pill to swallow and a spat in the face of the people.

BPSA questioned the criteria employed to arrive at the number of the vaccines to be made available for the provinces.

Seun Mogotji, BPSA leader, said the other worrying factor for the party was that given the bias nature of the Limpopo Department of Health, most vaccines would be allocated to Vhembe and Capricorn districts and least preferred would be Sekhukhune district.

Mogotji worried that Sekhukhune district would be given the crumbs of what was left and that the very same province which hosted people from China for quarantine purposes appeared to be overlooked at some instances.

The BPSA leader appealed to authorities to keep a hawk’s eye on the whole process and see to it that it is carried out efficiently.

“The party also calls for the national Department of Health to give us a break down of how they determined how many vaccines per province for the sake of transparency,” concluded Mogotji.

Mogotji added that the BPSA welcomed the arrival of the first batch of the much needed vaccines in the country on Monday, 01 February 2021.

He said the COVID-19 pandemic had wreaked untold havoc in the country and the arrival of the vaccines, backed by research and positive findings, brought hope.
