Naspers mulling over mandatory vaccines for SA staff

By S’thembile Cele

(Bloomberg) – Naspers is considering making Covid-19 vaccines mandatory for South African staff after the country’s largest medical-scheme administrator took the step earlier this month. 

Africa’s largest company by market value is mulling the decision to enable employees to travel safely, Phuthi Mahanyele-Dabengwa, head of Naspers South Africa, told the Nation Brand Forum on Tuesday. 

Discovery, which is involved in the country’s vaccine rollout, will make inoculations compulsory for all staff from the start of next year.
