Carl Niehaus sends a very strong warning to Ramaphosa - check out explosive statement he made

Mzansi is eagerly waiting to get feedback from President Cyril Ramaphosa's meeting with the National Coronavirus Command Council. The meeting, which was supposed to take place on Sunday had to be rushed forward to Saturday. This gave several people an impression that the meeting was rushed so the President can address the nation on Sunday.

Fears of another harder lockdown are mounting while Mzansi wait for Ramaphosa to speak. With concerns that another lockdown will cripple the country’s economy, Business for South Africa (B4SA) has called on government to move fast and restrict access to public indoor areas that are not required for emergency use (such as hospitals, grocery stores and certain Government services) to vaccinated South Africans only.(Source:

However, ANC veteran, Carl Niehaus has posted an explosive statement, saying Ramaphosa must not even think about making vaccines compulsory for any citizen. If Ramaphosa goes there, a legal battle will be thrown oh his face. Niehaus took to Twitter to share a clip where Ramaphosa told the whole nation that no one will be forced to take the jab. "With increasing calls for compulsory vaccination,and excluding those who have chosen not to get vaccinated from public events, education institutions (ala Wits), and travelling, let me remind Ramaphosa of this promise," Niehaus said, adding that the President better keep it, or legal action will follow.

Meanwhile, speculation is rife that government is planning to take the country to level four of lockdown. Who is advising Cyril Ramaphosa? No economic recovery plan but busy with lockdowns! If Ramaphosa goes ahead with the suspected lockdown, he must expect serious unrests and protests across the country. Citizens feel bullied already. We don’t need another lockdown - we just need another election - because clearly it’s fine for politicians to hold gatherings during elections but not for ordinary South African families during the festive season.
