President Cyril Ramaphosa addressed the nation on the new lockdown rules that needed to be followed for the festive season on Monday.

While many were expecting this to happen because Dr. Zweli Mkhize had announced the country has entered a second wave of infections, some were shook.

The president introduced new regulations which included restrictions on the sale of alcohol, the closure of certain beaches and even more restrictions on public gatherings.

Opposition parties are unimpressed with lockdown beach closures

A few people were unimpressed by how the president seemingly "excused" the City of Cape Town, even though the city had been in the spotlight for breaking regulations on social media.

A number of Mzansi social media users took to Twitter to express how they felt about the president's announcement:

@ZungulaVuyo said: "A loyal and diligent servant of Stellenbosch."
@RoryPetzer said: "Cape Town could arrange free WiFi for everyone, everywhere and Cyril would still refuse to call it a hotspot."
@oketsko said: "Not Cape Town having Cyril’s nudes."
@Xspensive101 commented: "This country will be colonized again if we keep taking stupid orders from this prepaid captured president. How do you explain Cape Town beaches, parks & wineries staying open while the rest of us are restricted?" previously reported that Blue Mbombo questioned Cyril Ramaphosa’s family meeting regulations. Blue Mbombo is one of the many South Africans who don’t seem too happy with President Cyril Ramaphosa right now. The model took to social media to question why other provinces were under strict lockdown regulations but Western Cape was not.

Taking to her Twitter account, Blue questioned whether the president was afraid of “the white people from Western Cape”. The influencer’s post left Mzansi divided with some agreeing with her, while others were left disappointed by her thoughts.
