Transport minister Fikile Mbalula causes a stir with vaccine picture

An old picture of transport minister Fikile Mbalula being vaccinated had social media tongues wagging on Sunday and drew mixed reactions.

Mbalula posted the picture with the caption “vaccine”.

The picture caused a buzz among social media users who suspected Mbalula was receiving the Covid-19 vaccine which arrived in the country last week.

Mbalula said the picture was “old” and he was to encourage people to have Covid-19 vaccinations when they become available.

“It is an old pic. Humorous,” said Mbalula.

“I was vaccinated for yellow fever many times.”

Here are of some reactions to the pic.:
