No jab, no access to parliament


Parliament has announced tough measures against the Covid-19 pandemic in the wake of the threat of a new variant, Omicron.

According to speaker of parliament Catherine Gotani Hara, the members of Parliament, staff, contractors and visitors will be required to produce a certificate that they are fully vaccinated, adding that failure to do so will see them getting tested on a daily basis at their own cost.

Gotani Hara said so far, Parliament has lost nine lawmakers to the pandemic hence the need to be extra careful.

The representatives of the parties in the committee namely Government Chief Whip, Kezzie Msukwa and DPP’s Symon Vuwa Kaunda also confirmed about the development.
“All persons entering Parliament premises be it MPs, journalists or contractors will be required to show their COVID-19 certificate or go to get a jab.” Said Hara to the applause of the House.
