Vice President and Minister of Health and Child care Costantino Chiwenga discouraged people who are suing the government for mandatory vaccination while he was in Kwekwe yesterday for the official opening of Kwekwe City council infectious disease hospital.

Speaking during the event he said," Whilst people have their individual rights and freedoms, those rights can be limited in the interest of public health such as the Covid 19 pandemic.

If it's your right you must stay indoors, that is what we have said. You don't need to go out and expose others but while in your house if you expose your family to Covid 19 you are also answerable".

He also expressed concern over the low numbers of people who have received vaccination in Kwekwe and also castigated individuals who are suing the government for calling for mandatory vaccination.
