Many South Africans have condemned citizens who do not adhere to the 21-day lockdown rules.

Some of the culprits have been made to exercise as a punishment for being out of their homes without solid reasons, and some have even been arrested for breaking the lockdown rules.

EFF leader Julius Malema is one of the law-abiding citizens who is doing his bit to make sure that culprits are brought to book.

Malema has posted a video of a man who brags about roaming the street at night in the current lockdown period.

Malema tweeted:

"Fellow fighters please help to locate this criminal."

In the video, the man, who seems intoxicated, can be heard saying:

"Hey Bheki Cele, can you see us? It's now half past 12, you can't tell us what to do. We can't be walking around with permits."

Briefly.co.za has reported that Police minister Bheki Cele is taking no prisoners with regard to the new regulations relating to curbing Covid-19.

He emphasised that offenders of the newly-introduced laws would face the wrath of the police and judicial system.
