It appears that Mzansi might be due for another family meeting with everyone nervous about what President Cyril Ramaphosa might say.
Some people with guilty consciences are worried that Uncle Cyril will punish them with another lockdown.
Twitter users are sharing their anxiety at the prospect of another family meeting where bad news is expected.
As Covid-19 infections continue to rise, South Africans are seriously concerned about what action the government is going to take.
Here are some of the reactions to a potential family meeting from Twitter users:
"Is #cyril going to address the nation tonight or what?"
"Whatever #cyril decides, he must leave restaurants opened. I can't afford to cook every day."
"#Cyril when he considers hard lockdown it must also affect public servants with no work no pay." We private sector employees, we are tired of being oppressed and targeted when it is our same taxes being used. #Covid19SA #WeWantOurCountryBack"
"We are moving to Level 5 of lockdown. Alcohol will not be sold until the 2nd of Jan. Stock up people. And also stay safe and don't drink and drive. #cyril"
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that Premier Alan Winde says that he will be calling for tighter Covid-19 restrictions when he meets with the president's Coordinating Council this afternoon.
The DA politician has confirmed that the meeting, which is chaired by Cyril Ramaphosa himself, will take place on Monday afternoon.
Winde insists that he is behind the tightening of regulations in the face of SA's second wave of infections:
"We will be meeting with the PCC at 2pm today [Monday 28 December]. I will be asking for further restrictions because we have to save that frontline. We have to save that hospital system."
In other news, Finance Minister Tito Mboweni has responded to countless reports of a suspected tightening of the Covid-19 lockdown. Taking to social media, Mboweni condemned these reports as fake news, commenting that:
"There is an escalation of fake news! This must be nipped in the bud and be punishable! We should wait for official communication to avoid misinformation."
