Ngcobo said making Covid-19 vaccines mandatory went against the constitution and would be challenged in court.
“Some people who have taken the vaccine have died, so how is it protecting us?” he said.
“We are compiling a formal court document to fight this. It's not just a matter of a march or protests. We are serious about taking this matter to court to stop government forcing people to vaccinate.”
He said even though Covid-19 was a global pandemic, it did not supersede the constitutional right of South Africans.
“This is a democratic country so we cannot be compelled to take a vaccine.”
He argued that citizens were being kept in the dark about what the vaccines contained, and said government could not be held liable for a person’s death after they were vaccinated.
“If you cannot be held liable that tells me you are playing with our lives. Why must we be forced to be vaccinated? We have a choice. It is our body.”
Ngcobo was arrested in May 2020 for allegedly violating lockdown regulations after he left home to go to a mountain to pray.
He remained mum on what the memorandum would contain when it was handed over at the Union Buildings.
“We are going to have a strategic planning meeting on Thursday,” he said.
