Since the Covid-19 pandemic has hit south africa, it has caused more rage and wars within the country's politicians.
Ramaphosa had to enforce several lockdowns regulations in order to curb the virus and reduce it's infection rate however there's a number of politicians who disagrees with him all the time he shifts the country to a new level.
Ramaphosa addressed the nation last night, taking South Africa to level 1. He also announced new curfews, and new regulations regarding gathering and alcohol consumption which is music to the ears of Many South Africans but that didn't seem to please Julius Malema.
Since The President of EFF wasn't pleased by Ramaphosa's speech, he took to Twitter where he said some harsh words about Ramaphosa in order to show off his anger.
He wrote “We always say to you that the @EFFSouthAfrica leads and they follow. The reality is we opened this country on Sunday 26 September 2021 at Winnie Madikizela-Mandela House. “VonyoVonyo, “ we follow science“ - lying se big nose. #VoteEFF”.
Here is the tweet below:
Proving that they did open the country, Malema and his comrades decided to violate the lockdown' regulations when they launched their manifesto in Ghandi Square also known as Madikizela-Mandela House.
Since South Africa was still on an adjusted level 2 of the lockdown, only 500 people were permitted on outside gathering but Malema being himself he called out all of his Comrades so that they could exceed the permitted number. See pictures below:
CHANGES MADE BY RAMAPHOSA on the adjusted level 1.
Ramaphosa eased the following
1. Curfew is now in place from 00:00 to 4:00 – shortened by one hour.
2. Restaurants, bars and gyms etc can stay open until 23:00.
3.The maximum number of people allowed to meet indoors is now up to 750.
4.The maximum number of people allowed to meet outdoors is now up to 2 000. Smaller venues must only accommodate 50% of capacity.
5.100 people can now attend a funeral, which is up from 50. But after-tears gatherings are still banned.
6.The sale of alcohol, on or off site, can now be sold ALL WEEK (but no later than 23:00).
