- Simphiwe Dana is not happy with Mzansi government's decision to open schools when the country moves to Level 3 lockdown
- The songstress said it was wrong to "force" parents to send their precious children to school amid the "highly contagious, fast-acting and airborne virus"
- Churches, schools and booze are some of the things that will be allowed when Level 3 lockdown begins on 1 June
Simphiwe Dana has added her two cents to the hot debate about the reopening of schools under Mzansi's Level 3 lockdown.
The singer has taken to social media to let peeps know that she is against the idea.
The Ndiredi hitmaker said it was wrong to "force" parents to send their bundles of joy to school amid the "highly contagious, fast-acting and airborne virus".
She said the decision by government was "unconscionable".
"Reopening schools and churches in the middle of a highly contagious, fast-acting and airborne virus. I don’t mind what adults do as no-one is forcing them but forcing parents to send their kids to a possible infection is unconscionable."
The songstress also questioned what would happen to the kids whose parents refuse to send them to school. President Cyril Ramaphosa said sending children to school was not compulsory.
"So what must happen to the kids who don’t attend classes? Do they forfeit a school year while the other kids don’t?"
The star also asked what government was doing to give kids options to study while at home.
"What online schooling options are they giving?"
Briefly.co.za has reported that Ramaphosa has also announced that congregational worship would be allowed at Level 3.
Gospel singer and pastor Khaya Mthethwa and media personality Anele Mdoda are also not okay with the fact that government is allowing churches to reopen when Mzansi moves to Level 3 lockdown.
The two stars took to social media to voice their concerns immediately after President Cyril Ramaphosa made the announcement on Tuesday night.
