Lockdown Level 1 : “It Will Only End In Tears” — Twitter Users Tell Cyril Ramaphosa

Many people on Twitter are seriously bashing the president of the republic of South Africa, Cyril Ramaphosa for moving the country to lockdown level 1, without waiting for them to be vaccinated, telling him that his decision will only end in tears. They noted that there was no need for him to beat around the bush, but should have rather gone straight to the point, saying that he wasted their precious time. Patricia, an EFF member told him on Twitter, “Tonight at 8 the appointment with your President. Fellow South African blah blah blah blah level 1. God bless her people #FamilyMeeting”.

Many people are asking the president, the essence of the level 1 Lockdown. “The announcement that preceded the one we received today was about vaccination. Not that I am endorsing that campaign. But wouldn't the sensible thing be to see to fit with a plan for it to yield results and then...? We are at Level 1 based on what? Surely, we are being ushered into the much anticipated third wave?”. Some people are even accusing a white man, saying he told the president to move the country to level1 lockdown,” So John Steenhuisen advised Cyril Ramaphosa to move us to level 1! Anyway we don't care we have serious problems in this country like Kaizer Chiefs.”

Many controversies have been trailing the announcement immediately it was revealed by the president, Cyril Ramaphosa in his national address today. They said that there was no need for level 1 Lockdown since level 3 was not fully implemented in the country. They however told the president that moving the country to lockdown level 1 is a big risk, especially now that the new wave of Coronavirus is being expected in the country, according to scientists. Furthermore, they told the president he should have waited for everyone to be vaccinated first before moving the country to level 1.

Some people are pointing to Julius Malema as the brain behind the lockdown level 1. They cited that the president couldn't have just skipped level 2, but when Malema tweeted level 1,the president had to comply. “Many underestimated Julius Malema’s words in Parliament when he said

‘I’m In Charge’.

He tweeted about Level 1 already it’s headline news and trending on social media.

He visits Zuma and everyone now wants tea.

The CiC has them running around”. It came as a surprise that the president skipped lockdown level 2 and took the country directly to lockdown level 1.
