South African televangalist known popularly as prophet Mboro has declared war on president Cyril Ramaphosa and his cabinet following speculations that a stricter lockdown might be on the cards after the emergence of a new deadly COVID-19 variant B.1.1.529.
Prophet Mboro said this fourth wave seems as if it was being manufactured all along and now government thinks it's the right time to impose it on people.
He said during election campaign and the July violent uprising where people were looting and destroying things without masks, the number of COVID-19 didn't go up. But it's only now that government see it fit to want to impose another lockdown on citizens.
The televangelist argues that now is the time for South African citizens to stand up on their feet and reject this speculated lockdown which is another form of suppression by those in authority.
"Now they say there is another variant resistant to vaccine, which means whoever is vaccinated is not covered from this variant. So how many variants are going to come? How many vaccines are we going to get at the end of the day?
They are busy creating these variants, they even know their names. They know their address and know when they are going to come. We need to pray that people have an uprising, that people stand up on their feet because we can't afford another lockdown. We can't afford another oppression," he said.
He adds that he saw this coming when scientists declared that South Africa was going to have a third wave in October and that thousands of people were going to die.
Former Chief Justice Mogoeng Mogoeng also echoed the same sentiments about the extension of lockdowns by the government.
Mogoeng said president Cyril Ramaphosa and his cabinet were exercising too much power and suppressing the freedoms of South African citizens in the form of lockdowns which is not constitutional.
