South Africa’s Yvonne Chaka Chaka faced harsh criticism for questioning how the Covid 19 vaccine had been found within months, yet one for other diseases such as Malaria and HIV had yet to be found. Taking to her Twitter account, the musician sought an explanation for how this was possible.

While the tweet could have been a well meaning concern, the musician faced backlash from Mzansi, with some questioning her Humanitarian and Goodwill ambassador credentials.

A medical Doctor sought to inform her that the failure to have those vaccines was not for lack of trying but because the nature of the illnesses is different.

Another Tweep reminded her that a lot of resources had already been invested into combatting HIV and Malaria

Other Tweeps were not as gracious in educating her. Some took to her comments to tell her that she appeared to have not been affected by Covid 19.
