Rather stop travel between provinces Too late for that government don't worry busy with looting the country. What about the 4th wave etc All because of this neh Close all schools and also places of worship, Taverns and nightclubs. Booze to be sold for home consumption only. At least do this in Gauteng. It will be a start. We only starting with the third wave, imagine when we hit the middle of it. Act now!!! David_Makhura Lesufi

UrbanLo It is not practical and executable Lol just after G7 summit is over.. But anyway other animals are more equal. It's all a scam Gauteng needs stricter control measures. There I definitely agree Yes please keep them there in Gauteng... God Bless South Africa

Excellent,more loss of revenue,beating innocent civilians,cops selling confiscated booze,sjamboking people for not wearing masks... MozzeyFlaco The dictator is using this fake virus to loot and dictate people's lives. I don't buy into this rubbish anymore Third wave of shrinking people's lives with something you don't have solution for it.

Unfortunately if we don't behave it's the right thing to do. Bullshit story this they just want to cripple business. Pure bull💩 Please do it already PresidencyZA how many more deaths are you waiting for? EmmanuelMabhena we must get my birthday Hennessy before they ban 🤣🤣🥺🥺! Can’t be sober again this year..🙈

I really hope they do. So many people getting sick. Hospitals are full. What's happening with the Nasrec? Is that still operational?

300k J&J Covid-19 vaccines to be shipped to SA 'urgently' | The CitizenCurrently, South Africa has two million Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccines on hold. I saw several people testifying of making so much money with the help of VentreGianluigi on Bitcoin options fade and I dicided to gave a try and am gald he helped me and my colleagues to make allot of profit in one week , thank you for your transparency and trust Going into trade with out having the proper education is very risky thing to do, that's why I recommend SilverAustinefx he's got all the help you need 👌💯follow SilverAustinefx FDA ordered them to be destroyed cause they're contaminated. Dr Tess Lawrie, a long time WHO advisor, say all the available vaccines should be destroyed with their technology and memory. Not fit for use in humans.

Tsek There is no need to ban Alcohol close taverns that allow sit ins and manage people drinking outside they homes. Nothing wrong with drinking buy and relax at home and put a 50% workplace policy in place for all employees not only Gov. CyrilRamaphosa DlaminiZuma HealthZA How many elderly folks have these ANC idiots ( CyrilRamaphosa ) vaccinated so far ?

Abramjee YES PLEASE 🙏🙏 Family meeting loading... All Provinces not Gauteng only. Other nations have moved foward, we still talking 3rd wave. It was definitely different ( the spread ) when alcohol was reduced to Mon to Thursday sales . Do that and we solve many problems . I wanna hear this...same old speech from the Nose of South Africa

LIVE | Covid-19 in SA: 9 320 new cases, 114 more deaths | News24COVID-19 | New infections: 9 320, new fatalities: 114. The death toll is 57 706. Majority of new cases are from Gauteng, with 5 902 reported new cases.

Here we go again...this useless MYANC government's only solution is 'let's ban alcohol' Ke utlwile feela ha David are 'these level 2 regulation are ineffective' They have looted resources for Covid Now the masses (poor of the poorest must be locked up )💔💔💔💔 Shame on Looters . The Government itself is also a Pandemic to its own people

Fukc off Is this Corona Virus got time of travelling or be transmitted? Because i do not understand about Curfew ?! Mixed messages from Govt. 'Stay safe', but the President attends gatherings and photo shoots with no mask. Yes, HE is vaccinated, but could still potentially spread the virus. Hopefully the prez will have his speech tonight. Things are starting to get out of hand.

Government considers? Ay they are fucking useless honestly More bullshit. Why every time they talk about stricter regulations they talk about alcohol....covid infect people who're drinking alcohol only?

COVID-19 | Over 8,000 new cases, 182 more deathsSouth Africa technically entered the third wave of COVID-19 infections on Thursday. What is covid-19? Safa'saphela... MYANC propaganda/lies

Gatherings should be reduced to max 50 immediately for a start, but short, sharp TARGETED Lockdowns with Test & Trace vaccination is the only way to prevent a severe Third wave. No inter-provincial travel for upcoming school holidays. Gatherings are such an issue. No masks, no social distancing. It takes on infected person to cause an outbreak at these gatherings.

Lockdown with such loadshedding?💔😕 While government can't provide water to hospitals. Ok. LOAD SHEDDING 🖕🏻 GovernmentZA le Ka nyela megwete And so the anti-Booze propaganda begins. Stock up, with immediate effect. Why Gauteng only

PODCAST | Another Covid-19 corruption scandal: Is it naïve to expect politicians to be ethical?PODCAST | Another week passes in SA, and with it another Covid-19 corruption allegation rears its ugly head, this time in relation to the mass sanitising of Gauteng schools in 2020. Does it ever end ? It's clearly in their culture to steal. Pathetic and depressing Dr Mkhize is one of the best health ministers. He needs to continue to fight this pandemic .
