Local celebrities call for vaccinations

Hashtag gains momentum

As tension and anxiety reaches their peak, with a staggering 4, 008 Covid-19 positive cases registered in the space of three days, local celebrities have taken to social media to express their concern.

With Botswana now marked as one of the nations currently registering the most cases per 1, 000 citizens daily, society’s high flyers view this as a scenario that could have been avoided.

They feel the government should be doing more to secure vaccinations for the country.

As of 16 July, almost six months after the vaccine first became available, the number of fully vaccinated residents stood at 116, 147.

The government has since issued a statement announcing a further delay in the arrival of vaccines, which were initially scheduled for the end of June but have now been earmarked for August.

This proved a boiling point of sorts for the stars who, under the campaign #VaccinateBatswana, have started to use their masses and muscle for their voices to be heard.

We have witnessed the incompetence way too many times, but they still have the audacity to stand before us and still make promises with no shame covid funds Di jelwe, no vaccines or facilities. Just vibes.
