- Lady Zamar cannot stand to see Mzansi crippled the way that it is
- Seeing the endless corruption taking place when people are starving is something Lady Zamar just cannot stand for
- Lady Zamar took to social media with a series of posts explaining her feelings
Lady Zamar’s heart is breaking watching Mzansi be destroyed by this coronavirus. From poverty to illness to corruption, SA is going through a lot.
While the coronavirus has hit the entire globe hard, third-world countries like SA are feeling it that much harder. This virus is crippling in more ways than just health.
Briefly.co.za learnt that Lady Zamar has been heavily affected by the state that the coronavirus has left our beloved country in. Seeing the destruction, it is causing is giving her sleepless nights.
Taking to social media Lady Zamar let the people of Mzansi know that she feels their pain and sees their suffering and wishes there was something more she could do.
Lady Zamar cannot believe the level of corruption that has been taking place when so many families are struggling to even put food on their tables.
"Sometimes you wonder if people who steal funds meant for impoverished and disadvantaged people understand that by their actions, they’re pointing a loaded gun at the people who need those funds."
Understanding that lockdown was implemented to save lives, Lady Zamar, like many others, feels poverty is taking more lives than the coronavirus.
"We’re going through a lot, yes. Covid-19 is affecting the global economy, but developing countries are casualties in so many other different ways.”
"I’m sorry that so many people have been financially affected by Covid-19. It breaks my heart that our country already prior to the lockdown was going through a lot, and now I can’t even begin to imagine how people who’ve lost their jobs are coping and dealing with the stress."
