Before the last time Cyril Ramaphosa addressed the nation, many people expected South Africa to go into a higher level of Lockdown. However that didn't happen and all he did was warm us of the dangers of the New Covid 19 Variant, as well as urge us to get vaccinated. However one girl on TikTok actually claims that the president put us in lockdown without us knowing. Here's what she had to say.
In a video posted online, which you can watch by clicking on the link below, one South African girl claims that our president actually did put us in lockdown without us knowing.
In a video with the caption '' if you think Cyril didn't lock us down on Sunday, You're mistake", She first thanks the government for not raising the level of Lockdown when the president addressed the nation. However she goes on to claim that he instead raised the petrol price so high that we couldn't go anywhere. While he reasoning is a bit flawed, I see what she means. Click on the link to watch the video, or keep reading to understand the implications of this.
The sad reality :
Recently the petrol price was raised by a eighty one cents. This put it at a record high and put a dent in the pockets of those looking to fill up. It was later discovered that the petrol price raise was actually a mistake and it was supposed to be raised by seventy five cents.
While the error was fixed, the petrol price is still very high, and many South Africans who cannot afford it have to travel less. This is similar to a lockdown, where travel restrictions are placed. So I agree that while the president may not have actually put us in a lockdown, he did create a situation similar to lockdown.
