Famous Kaizer Chiefs supporter Saddam Maake was one of those receiving their Covid-19 jabs at pop-up tents set up at FNB Stadium on Wednesday as the government launched its “Return to Play — it’s in your hands” vaccination drive.

Maake, watched and cheered on by Deputy President David Mabuza, Gauteng premier David Makhura, and sports, arts and culture minister Nathi Mthethwa, was also a speaker at the event. He received a vaccination.

The “It's in your hands” campaign seeks to incentivise vaccinations by harnessing the public's yearning to return to sports stadiums and music, arts and cultural events, Mabuza said,  launching the campaign.
