Covid-19 vaccines SA Government / Pfizer contract #8

The SA government, in its contract with Pfizer, not only indemnified Pfizer and its affiliates from nearly every possible lawsuit arising out of or resulting from the vaccines, but went even further - they undertook…

… to defend any claims against Pfizer and its affiliates, and – as if that was not enough – 
… they agreed that, should Pfizer not be satisfied with the SA government’s defence against the claim, they (Pfizer) would take over the defence themselves, and make the SA government pay for every expense.

The following is an excerpt from the Pfizer Vaccine Contract:

Why did our government agree to this contract provision?
