South Africans react to level 1

During the presidential address or 'family' meeting on Thursday night, President Ramaphosa announced that the country will move to alert level 1 from mid night. Providing that people get vaccinated and wearing masks and sanitization are still mandatory. Level 1 will see longer curfew, more numbers allowed for gatherings, and travel restrictions lifted as well as sporting events etc will be open.

The news had South Africans on social media saying that this was a political move, because the elections are coming up and that this level 1 would allow the political leaders to go canvassing. They said that come December we will be back in level 4. However the numbers of covid-19 cases have decreased dramatically.

Check out people's reactions below. Comment your thoughts. Do you think this move is political or is it the decline in covid cases.
