Meet Tatenda, A Zimbabwean Man Who Lost His Job For The Second Time Due To Lockdown.

A Zimbabwean man named Tatenda was working as a manager at Riverine Rabbit before it closed after the first lockdown was announced, he the had to look for another job at a restaurant as a waiter in Sea Point and at Bao Down in Cape Town.

He had been working there for some time now and he was doing two shifts a week and getting R300 to R500 a day after working for 6 hours.

The restaurant was closed immediately after the president announced Level 4 Lockdown which was on Sunday, the store owner is not planning to reopen anymore meaning everyone should start looking for new jobs which will be hard to find.

President Cyril Ramaphosa said in his speech that table service at restaurants have been prohibited again, and without sit-ins the waitress are not all necessary meaning managers have to trim their staff and remain with a few people.

Waiters and restaurant staff are now left without an income once again, and even worse some lost the jobs completely.

For the second time, Tatenda lost a restaurant job because of the Covid-19 pandemic, he has a 1-year-old baby to feed but no income will be coming in anymore. He says the president’s announcement brought him into tears because he has lost a job for the second time now, and he does not know where to start looking.
