L'vovo has taken to social media to join other South Africans who are calling for Employment and Labour Minister Thulas Nxesi to address people who are worried about losing jobs during lockdown.
Nxesi's name has been trending on social media as worried citizens apply more pressure on the minister to address the increasing levels of unemployment in Mzansi. Since the Covid-19 pandemic lockdown, many people have been struggling financially as companies continue to retrench workers.
The Bayang'sukela hitmaker told Nxesi on Twitter that South Africans are worried about jobs.
"Minister, South Africans are worried about jobs. Put the nation under confidence @NxesiThulas."
The star also suggested that the money spent on the state capture commission of inquiry could have been better used by providing relief to black businesses on the brink of collapse.
"How many black businesses can flourish with R700 million?"
In other news related to Nxesi, Briefly.co.za reported that the minister is in the spotlight as truck drivers continue to protest foreign nationals being employed over locals.
Nxesi insisted that the country cannot ban a company from employing foreigners due to a number of treaties signed by government. The minister pointed out that a policy limiting the number of foreigners a South African company may employ is already in the pipeline, but protesters aren't satisfied.
He is facing thousands of calls to step down from his office after "defending" the rights of foreign nationals in South Africa. The truck drivers said they are now waiting for Nxesi to say something 'positive' or the protest will continue.
