Prayers for Zwelinzima Vavi as coronavirus lands him in hospital
The revelation came after Vavi, the general secretary of SA Federation of Trade Unions, announced on Thursday that he had tested positive for the highly infectious coronavirus. The firebrand leader on Saturday released a video of himself in which he was sweating heavily.
“Corola have [sic] finally met its match, stands no chance, none whatsoever. It's going to be defeated. It's going to be chased out of this body. Is going to die outside. We are made of a sterner stuff and we will be the last to stand. It will fall. It must fall. It will fall,” said Vavi.
While some Twitter users wished Vavi a speedy recovery and others promised to pray for him, one took Jim to task for having “took time to release the statement”.
“Vavi has been admitted this evening I was directly involved and aware about the process him and his family deserve privacy and I talk only when it’s necessary keep your politics of time to yourself we wish him speed recovery,” Jim responded.
