- Siv Ngesi wants government to impose "harsher" lockdown restrictions in Gauteng amid the third wave of the virus infections
- It has been reported that the infection rate in the province has spiked as the people of the province don't follow lockdown rules
- The media personality's followers shared mixed reactions to his post with some saying they want vaccines instead of more restrictions
Siv Ngesi is calling for harsher Covid-19 lockdown restrictions in Gauteng. The province has seen a spike in the number of people who have tested positive for the coronavirus.
Government has said it time and again that the country is now experiencing the third wave of the infections because the majority of Mzansi's citizens don't adhere to the lockdown restrictions.
"GP should go under harsher restrictions!"
The star's followers shared mixed reactions to his post. Check out some of his fans' comments below:
"They've been done already, its futile, government failed to do what was necessary, they busy ka di Covid tenders."
"If only people understood that the spikes are caused by unemployment then they wouldn’t dictate harsher restrictions as this exacerbates the situation."
"We need vaccines, restrictions won't solve anything."
"I'm on my own level 5."
"Maybe you are going to buy food, pay bonds, car installments of all the people that will lose jobs!"
"I think you are missing his point... There is NO trade-off between life and those bonds and cars... You can always buy another car, another house and so on. Not life."
Cassper Nyovest behind EFF march to SAHPRA
In related news, Briefly News reported that South African rapper Cassper Nyovest has put his full weight behind the Economic Freedom Fighter's (EFF) plan to march to the offices of the South African Health Products Authority (SAHPRA) on Friday.
The EFF last week released a statement citing their plan to march to SAHPRA's offices on Friday, 25 June, in view of what they describe as the government's lacklustre management of the Covid-19 vaccine rollout programme.
The Doc Shebeleza hitmaker has nodded with approval in the direction of the party, signalling the importance for the South African population to get vaccinated.
Taking to Twitter, the record label boss substantiated his support for the march to move ahead, making sure to add that his support should not in any way be seen as political.
