The government in Zimbabwe is asking its employees to get vaccinated against Covid-19 or resign.
It says the move is aimed at reducing the risk of spreading the virus.
In an interview with local radio, Justice Minister Ziyambi Ziyambi says that employees who think they have a right to choose whether or not they can be vaccinated have it all wrong,
The government earlier on introduced a new regulation for churches and restaurants to only allow people with a vaccination card inside their premises.
The aim is to tackle vaccine hesitancy within the population.
The southern African country has been able to fully vaccinate 1.7 million people.
No country in Africa has introduced legislation to make a Covid vaccine mandatory for the population.
However, some experts are of the opinion that a case can be made for such policies to be introduced as a way of tackling the pandemic and its threat to public health.
