Anger Arises in South Africa as Government Plans to Change Lockdown Rules on Election Day

Lots of South Africans who were surprised that the government have planned to change the lockdown rules on the 1 November election holiday. Many believes that this move was only done for the choices and it isn't so that South Africans can enjoy their freedom. 

According to the recent advertisement by the South African president Cyril Ramaphosa, the 1st of November is now declared a public vacation. According to president Ramaphosa, there will still be an alcohol ban on that day and the curfew cancelled from the usual time. 

When the people heard this, They questioned this move as to why is the 1st of November a public vacation and why is alcohol deals still being banned on that day for no reason.

On that day they would be no Curfew but according to Cyril Ramaphosa, curfew will probably hamper how the election and voting are run throughout the day as numerous voting stations will be open until late hours. To make sure that the voting and election go smoothly, the president decided to cancel curfew only for that day but alcohol ban still remains.


The government are now bending and changing lockdown rules and regulations to their own free will at anytime.

These regulations were put in place to regulate the spread of coronavirus and not to favour the election. Now that the government is using the election as a way to cheat the lockdown regulations, South Africans are veritably angry. If the cases increases rapidly that day, we won’t be surprised.
