John Maytham speaks to Development Impact fund CEO, Lorenzo Davids on whether government should enforce compulsory vaccinations.
  • President Ramaphosa on Sunday night announced that a government task team had been set up to undertake broad consultations on making Covid-19 vaccinations mandatory for specific activities and locations
  • CEO of the Development Impact Fund Lorenzo Davids says the notion of collective responsibility for the national well-being is the backbone of the argument for mandatory vaccinations

The notion of collective responsibility by every citizen for our national well-being is a fundamental thread that runs through our Constitution.

Lorenzo Davids, CEO -  Development Impact Fund

That notion of collective responsibility is what I believe should form the backbone for the argument for mandatory vaccinations.

Lorenzo Davids, CEO -  Development Impact Fund

I think the president has wasted an enormous amount of time to get to this point.

Lorenzo Davids, CEO -  Development Impact Fund

We don't have six months - we need an answer on compulsory mandatory vaccinations within weeks if not days. Ther is an urgency from an economic, political, and well-being standpoint.

Lorenzo Davids, CEO -  Development Impact Fund

There are lots of people punting views about bodily integrity and constitutional right to your own dispensation- but this is like a state of war where certain rights are suspended so that the country is protected, systems are protected and institutions are protected.

Lorenzo Davids, CEO -  Development Impact Fund

Right now everybody's rights are under threat.

Lorenzo Davids, CEO -  Development Impact Fund
