- The African Transformation Movement has called on president Cyril Ramaphosa to convene an urgent meeting with political party leaders
- The party wants Ramaphosa to reveal what he discussed in a meeting with businessman Bill Gates
- ATM president Vuyo Zungula said they wanted to know whether the friendly tennis match earlier this year was a "smokescreen" to a serious meeting between Ramaphosa and Gates about vaccines that were to be piloted on the continent
The African Transformation Movement (ATM) has written to president Cyril Ramaphosa asking him for an urgent special meeting with all political party leaders to discuss "concerns" around the coronavirus outbreak and the ongoing lockdown.
The party wants the meeting to take place prior to Ramaphosa's address to the nation.
In the letter, ATM president Vuyo Zungula writes that the nation is divided and not fully heeding Ramaphosa's call on how the lockdown should be observed.
"The conflicting and inconsistent messages from your power-hungry ministers have aggravated the situation."
Zungula said some of the issues of concern to the nation were the friendly tennis match in Cape Town involving businessman Bill Gates and comedian Trevor Noah, and the "deal" that Ramaphosa struck with Gates on behalf of the citizens.
Zungula says he wants to know whether it's true that the doubles match was a "smokescreen" to a serious meeting between Ramaphosa and Gates about vaccines that were to be piloted in the continent.
"This includes Covid-19 which had already broken-out in China. If not, are you able to take the nation into your confidence and disclose what you discussed with Bill Gates during his visit on our shores in February 2020?"
Zungula also wants Ramaphosa to take politicians into his confidence about social media rumours that masks being rolled out in townships are already infected with the virus.
"Mr president, is there veracity in the information floating on social media that the masks being rolled out particularly in our villages and townships are already infected and that you are allegedly working together with Bill Gates who is alleged to be on a mission to depopulate the continent."
Briefly.co.za has reported that Health Minister Dr Zweli Mkhize announced the number of confirmed Covid-19 cases now stands at 1 656 with 11 fatalities.
