- A viral video of a woman who allegedly is cabinet minister Lindiwe Zulu is doing the rounds on Twitter
- She says in the video that she finds it 'difficult to stay home'
- Social media users were not impressed
A video on Twitter is doing the rounds, a woman, who is apparently cabinet minister Lindiwe Zulu is confronted about why she is out in public.
Her response has gotten people feathers ruffled and asking questions about what it means to lead by example.
The woman says, "I'm finding it difficult to stay at home! Virus, just go away, please leave us alone - we have a life to live."
Briefly.co.za knows that South Africans have been told to stay home if possible, to self isolate in order to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus. This may be difficult for some people but necessary to protect vulnerable people and to ease the strain on the healthcare system.
Deliberately going out because you're bored or don't like staying home sends the wrong message.
The video has had hundreds of retweets and at the time of writing this article 1000 likes.
Angry social media users had a few things to say:
@COVID-19 will be defeated in SA: She must be fired
@ngoako_mannya: She should be encouraging people to stay home instead she is posting this rubbish im so so disappointed
@Mogale200: lm not going to say a word l will the moments
@manare_ragoja: Sies at her big age Crying face she can’t stay at home she has to spend the corruption money
