The Covid-19 pandemic has certainly made things harder for South Africa. Mzansi singer Simphiwe Dana took to social media to share her thoughts on the state of the country.
"South Africa is so anti-poor guys. People are losing houses and cars during a pandemic. Schools want their full fees even though they know we’re not working," said Simphiwe.
Simphiwe lamented the fact that it seemed like the government didn't have a plan for the nation's sorrows. The singer said that it was heartbreaking that it seems like there are no solutions.
Covid-19 has not only affected South Africans in terms of health but also financially. A number of people lost their jobs and businesses had to close down due to a lack of income.
Mzansi social media users weighed in on the matter under Simphiwe's comments section:
"Yet our president writes a newsletter saying relief has been effective and it's now time to move away from it. That people are hardly relieved is a minor detail worth ignoring."
"Downgrade and regroup, it may sound mean but such is life. Gather yourself for a better you."
"Not to mention that we paid the whole amount for university residences that we hardly occupied last year."
"This conversation just hurts me to the core and honestly I'm tired tired of this government."
