Twitter users reacted to his post with the following comments:
@vigorous_____pf: "Under strict conditions. Churches are advised to sanitise their members and do temperature checks. By the way, People with Covid-19 still go to pharmacies to buy medications. Stop complaining and embrace the new normal because Covid-19 is here to stay."
@Joe4Public: "Why do you assume South Africans can't think for themselves?! If you can, so can everyone!"
@Monnatiaaa: "After many years of not agreeing with you, but Mo going I agree with you."
Yesterday, Ndlozi caused a stir online when he demanded to be given a racial breakdown of Covid-19 statistics.
He was accused of racialising the pandemic when he asserted that the lockdown was created to flatten the infection rate in white suburbs.
He added that he did not think the white community could lose 165 of their own in a week and remain quiet about it.
The former EFF spokesperson then suggested the death numbers indicated those of black lives lost.
"The only lives that don't matter, that are dispensable and voiceless, are black lives," he wrote in the post.
In other news, Briefly.co.za reported that Julius Malema has been vocal about his opposition to relaxed lockdown regulations ever since the country moved to lockdown Level 4.
The EFF leader took to Twitter on Sunday night to voice his opinion after President Cyril Ramaphosa revealed plans to downgrade the lockdown to Level 3 from 1 June.
Juju did not write much, he simply shared a shrugging emoji and posted a photo that reads:
"It will end in tears."
