Mzansi celebs have reacted with mixed reviews to President Cyril Ramaphosa's speech on combating the spread of coronavirus in the country.
The first thing that got SA riled up was the president's lateness.
He delivered the speeach well after 8pm, even though it was scheduled for 6pm.
Comedian David Goliath asked, "Is Cyril still washing his hands?"
Reality television star Lasizwe Dambuza wrote, "Cyril Ramaphosa is typing..."
Lasizwe was also not impressed by the president's speech.
He said, "I feel like Cyril didn't say anything much. What about the middle class that travels by taxi, bus and train? What must happen?"
Actress Terry Pheto wrote, "So Eskom suspended load shedding for nothing."
Presenter Anele Mdoda urged South Africans to not be too hard on the president.
She wrote, "Can ya'll not come here and poke holes in EVERYTHING the president said. There is water coming in from every angle into our house and what they are trying to do is turn off the water."
"We can't block every hole. We need to limit the amount of water coming in."
President Ramaphosa did his best to attempt to re-assure South Africans that this too shall pass.
He said schools are breaking for holidays a week early and visas from certain countries have been cancelled.
