Things have been looking a little bleak for Mzansi as the country entered its second wave of Covid-19 infections. A clip of a gathering in Cape Town made the rounds on social media and some Mzansi citizens were certainly not impressed.

The band GoodLuck was booked to play in Constantia Nek at a venue called La Parada on Sunday and broke a number of Level 1 lockdown regulations. There was no social distancing, masks were not being worn and the venue was overcrowded.

In the video, the band's lead singer is singing to the crowd and they are screaming back at her. The people at the venue are way too close to each other for a country that is fighting against a very contagious virus.

Social media users in Mzansi were not happy with what took place at the event. Here are a number of comments from users below:

@InshallahAmeena said: "What is wrong with Cape Town? Do you want a lockdown?"
@thandiskade said: "Unbelievable! And someone at La Parada thought the appropriate response was to delete the Twitter account. What a wow!"
@colony1652 commented: "A reminder that Africa is last in line for a vaccine. Good luck killing it at La Parada, Constantia Nek."
@Craigrodney said: "This is so dodgy given what’s happening with the second wave, but before you use this push a certain narrative, there are examples like this from every part of the country."

Health Minister Zweli Mkhize asked South Africans to make good decisions this festive season and choose to save lives rather than take risks.

Essentially, he asked people to choose between life and death over the festive season as the Covid-19 pandemic begins its second wave in South Africa, according to Times Live. He spoke at a webinar on Saturday where he appealed to South Africans to make sacrifices and not hold large celebrations but keep the festivities to a minimum to reduce the spread of the virus.
