The Truth is a Public Service


The first case of Covid-19 was reported in South Africa 17 long months ago. Since then, we have endured lockdowns, grief, death and curfews - all in the pursuit of flattening the curve and saving lives. Now we have readily available vaccines, but empty vaccination sites, because the Department of Health has failed spectacularly in its communications. The Digital Vibes saga exposed how money intended for Covid-19 communications was instead used to enrich the family and friends of Zweli Mkhize. Now it is up to real media to communicate the truth about the virus and vaccines. It is public service journalism.
