JOHANNESBURG — An influential 35-year-old digital media expert is dead in one of the fastest post-injection deaths we’ve covered in months.
Mr. Siyabonga Africa received his first dose of experimental Pfizer mRNA on Friday, July 16, according to his Twitter account. The first two comments on the tweet were a woman telling him “well done,” and another woman with party emojis. He retweeted two pro-mRNA posts shortly thereafter. Two days later, Sunday, July 18, he retweeted a post about Fauci allegedly receiving his second dose of experimental mRNA on January 19. Fauci said he was “knocked out,” fatigued and achy for 24 hours thereafter. Mr. Africa wrote, “This is me with dose number 1. It’s been 48 hours of hell.” He collapsed in his home on the night he received the injection. But paramedics dismissed it as nothing. He was not hospitalized.
He also retweeted a doctor that day who said she is here to comfort anyone having vaccine adverse effects. Mr. Africa replied, complaining of a fever, nausea and inability to move ever since he received the injection. But then he said, “No regrets, I’d still get the shot if I knew this is what I had to look forward too.” Simone Gregor, his friend/colleague, wished him a speedy recovery. Ms. Gregor replied again on Monday, July 19 and asked “how are you feeling today?” When he didn’t respond, she tried sending him a message on WhatsApp. Ms. Gregor then received a message from one of Mr. Africa’s family members. He passed away early that morning.
