The Reaction Unit South Africa (RUSA) team reported that they were called out to an incident in Tongaat on Monday, after a man in his fifties collapsed mysteriously outside of a vaccination centre in the KZN town.

Conspiracy theories quelled…

Eyewitnesses say they saw the gentleman smoking a cigarette and using a walking aid before his sudden bout of ill-health. The first responders worked on the male at the scene, but sadly, he was declared dead upon their arrival.

Of course, his death has drawn a bit of attention due to where it took place. But conspiracy theorists can stand down for now – the 51-year-old was waiting to receive his second jab, weeks after getting his first dose at the vaccination centre. He was not given any form of treatment on Monday, and passed away before he could get his final vaccine.
