"We are very concerned that the amount of vaccinations in terms of response now is a presented challenge, especially amongst men as we notice on a daily basis that reports are saying men are very reluctant compared to women in taking the vaccination," he said.

"It is now the responsibility of all of us as political parties, political leaders to take the initiative."

The party has also welcomed the move from level 3 lockdown to level 2.
