- King Monada has called for South Africans to support street vendors
- This comes as the country prepares for the three-week lockdown that will soon start
- The muso knows these people will suffer greatly in this time of isolation
King Monada hopes that South Africans will open their hearts and their wallets to street vendors.
The country is preparing for a mandatory 21-day lockdown and this will greatly affect sellers of goods on Mzansi's streets.
These people depend on every day sales to provide for their families and with the lockdown, they won't be able to sell much, if anything.
The musician is encouraging support of the vendors and used social media to call on fans to show some love.
In related news, Briefly.co.za reported that Boity Thulo has expressed her worry for general workers who will be expected to work during the lockdown.
Boity supports the hope that these people will receive better salaries once the lockdown is something of the past.
Fortunately, some employers are showing kindness - Shoprite, in the spirit of thanking employees ahead of this crucial period for SA's future, has announced a R102 million once-off bonus for staff in shops and distribution centres.
Shoprite CEO Pieter Engelbrecht commented on the decision to spoil one of the largest employee groups in the country:
"Our employees are crucial players in the task ahead and the Group wants to thank and reward them for their tireless efforts to stock our shelves with food and other essentials for our 29 million shoppers."
