Now is not the time to “put brakes” on the fight against malaria says world-renowned South African singer Yvonne Chaka Chaka.
On the occasion of World Malaria Day, the UN Goodwill Ambassador of the Roll Back Malaria Partnership is highlighting that the disease is an African problem that she thinks needs an African solution.
Eighty per cent of cases worldwide are in sub Saharan Africa.
Malaria is transmitted via the bites of infected mosquitoes, and can quickly become like-threatening if left untreated.
Derrick Mbatha spoke with Ms Chaka Chaka on the line from South Africa and began by asking her why she made eradicating malaria her priority.
