Mzansi is left wondering after Ramaphosa made a quote at the end of his speech.


President Cyril Ramaphosa wagging his finger at the United Kingdom, the European Union, and the United States over travel restrictions. I'm not sure if it was the correct thing to do, but it's okay; it felt nice. It has to be said at some point. Our South African scientists were praised for their efforts. Countries that barred travel in a panic without consulting the international community were chastised. Last night, he was a Rockstar. He gave his first speech in which he genuinely spoke in terms of science rather than anecdote. Vaccine passports are on their way, and it's about time. 

We can't believe we're still talking about forcing people to get vaccinated when fully vaccinated travelers were discovered to be the global spreaders of the omicron variety. Vaccinations would not be necessary, according to President Cyril Ramaphosa. He stated today that they are urgently looking at making vaccines mandatory. Mbeki was speaking about a culture of lying, and this is what he was referring to. 

President Cyril Ramaphosa remarked in his speech last night: 

1. Who came up with the name Omicron for the variant? 

2. Get tested if you're experiencing symptoms. 

3. Please get vaccinated. 

4. Vaccine mandates are being implemented. 

5. Put your mask on. 

Ventilation is number six. 

7. Make sure everything is clean. 

8. Stay away from large indoor gatherings. 

9. Alert Level 1 is still active. 

10. It's free to get vaccinated. 

11. 12 a.m. to 4 a.m. curfew 

12. At funerals, there should be no more than 100 people. 

13. There will be no tears afterward. 

14. The alcohol is still present. 

15. Infection rates will be monitored. 

If you don't get vaccinated, more varieties will emerge. 

17. He keeps saying "vaccine guys" over and over. Please, just get vaccinated. 

We appreciate President Cyril Ramaphosa's speech from last night; it was fantastic and 100 percent true. But, President Cyril Ramaphosa, as the leader of the South African nation, we beg that you please halt Covid-19 infections for the month of December, just as you did during the Municipal Elections?
