Vaccinated Mangosuthu Buthelezi Tests Positive For Covid-19


The fully vaccinated founding leader of Inkatha Freedom Party (IFP) tests positive for covid-19, second time after contracting the virus in August last year. The family of the IFP leader released a statement stating that Mangosuthu Buthelezi has tested postive earlier today.

The family stated that Buthelezi is in high spirit and asymptomatic, as they asked the media to give the family a space to deal with this in private. In the statement Buthelezi stated that the only regret is that he won’t be able to attend the installation ceremony of Dr Precious Motsepe as chancellor of University Of Cape Town.

One wonders how effective is Corona virus vaccine, when one can test positive even though they are fully vaccinated against the virus. Buthelezi had fully vaccinated against the virus, though he still contracted it, the efficacy of the vaccine is questionable at this point of time.
