Nzimande: Higher Education institutions should be guided by Constitution

South Africa

Johannesburg – Higher Education Minister Blade Nzimande says universities and colleges should be guided by the Constitution when making decisions about mandatory vaccines.

The minister said the Constitution protects those who are against vaccination and those who have received their jab.

Students at the University of the Free State have been demonstrating against mandatory vaccinations.

“Institutions have been engaging and I have encouraged them to engage in order to ensure that there is as a wide consensus as possible,” said Nzimande.

“I also I have given them further guidance that they should be guided by our Constitution.”
