Mbuyiseni Ndlozi doesn't feel repatriating South Africans from the coronavirus-hit Wuhan would pose a risk to the country.

In a tweet on Thursday, Ndlozi condemned those who protested the returns of Saffas from the Covid-19 epicentre.

His post read:

"There is absolutely no rational in protesting South Africans to come home from China. None of them have Coronavirus. If they did, they would have been committed to Wuhan hospital facilities. Allow them to come home, this is their home! They are us, we are them! Stop being so evil."
