KISORO– As COVID-19 vaccination takes a new shape in the country, the Kisoro District boss Abel Bizimana has warned unvaccinated Civil servants in his area stressing that they are risking losing their jobs.
Bizimana stressed that some civil servants in Kisoro district are adamant and are shunning the COVID-19 vaccination.
The district boss uttered all these on 24th November 2021 while speaking during a function of issuing land certificates to residents held at Kisoro district head quarters.
Bizimana narrated that the government will not force anyone to take the COVID-19 jabs but those who opt not to get vaccinated will have to vacate their job positions, he challenged teachers in the district to embrace the vaccination exercise as government prepares to reopen schools or else they risk being deleted from the payroll.
Bizimana further stressed that since the vaccines were approved by the World Health Organization those de-campaigning them are enemies of the country.
Rtd. Capt. Peter Mugisha, the Kisoro Resident District Commissioner revealed a plan by security officers in the district to mount roadblocks in different area to stop the movement of unvaccinated people by the end of next week.
The RDC gave residents of 18 years and above an ultimatum of 7 days to get vaccinated as those without vaccination cards won’t access government services and will be stopped from accessing public places such as markets, churches, public transport among others.
Retired captain Peter Mugisha noted that Kisoro district is yet to receive more than 150,000 dozes of COVID-19 vaccines which will be followed by massive immunisation on Friday this week.
He encouraged local leaders to rally people to get vaccinated as means of containing the spread of the virus which would in turn allow governments to fully reopen the economy.
