TV presenter Anele Mdoda has criticised peeps who have complained about some of Mzansi's Level 4 lockdown regulations.

She has taken to social media to express her views about peeps who have issues with the time period they have been given to exercise under the new eased restrictions of the Level 4 lockdown.

Government recently announced that people would be allowed to exercise - including cycling, running or walking - but only in the morning from 6am – 9am in their own neighbourhoods, within a 5km radius.

Anele wrote on social media:

"Guys the time limitations are not saying corona does not exist between 6-9am it's saying if you want to jog so bad here is your chance. Serious runners do so that early anyway. Why do you guys think you are on holiday? And no groups simple. Y'all wanna run anytime?"

She further said:

"Also how will it be policed if you are within a 5k radius? Well, police yourself you full blown adult. Stop looking to see how and where you can break lockdown regulations and just help along to get along."

Broadcaster Redi Tlhabi also took to social media to share her excitement of being allowed to exercise under Level 4 lockdown.

"YES! @BruceFordycerun..did you hear? We can run within a 3km radius in our neighborhoods although not the usual 5am start. Between 6am & 9am. 3kms ×4 repeats OR different 3kms routes in same suburb should easily give us respectable weekly mileage. Can't wait to hit the tarma."

Redi said running from 6am is fine with her "given that we are running solo".

"I have some amazing 5km routes from here... there and back... 10kms.... salivating at the thought of it. And 6am is actually fine given that we are running solo, so 5am a bit too early to run alone! I'm besides myself." has reported that Minister of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, has provided a detailed update to shed light on some of the changes that came into effect from 1 May.
