Three-time SAFTA-nominated actor Siv Ngesi is really taking the Covid-19 crisis in South Africa seriously. Siv said that he would deal with anyone who says that the virus is fake. The country has reached over 1ne million confirmed cases and the second wave is currently taking place. Taking to Twitter this week, Siv decided to make it known that the virus means serious business.
"Three friends lost their parents today! If I lost a parent and I had people saying Covid is fake, I would punch you in the throat," said Siv.
A number of Mzansi celebrities have spoken about their opinions on the virus with some having lost people close to them.
Siv was not impressed with how some South Africans are still holding onto the belief that the virus is not real.
A number of social media users engaged with the tweet:
@BrettFishA said: "While I don't agree with violence, I totally get the sentiment here and the people who are still claiming Covid is fake need to understand the violence of their words and attitudes towards all those who are struggling or have lost people."
@NicolaCoop commented: "Same. People are so disappointing."
@Vaneshree02 said: "I'm so sorry Siv. Strength and love to all."
