Festive mood

Vusumzi Myeki, Khayelitsha

It pains me to see our people arrogantly disobeying the regulations set by the government to avoid the infection and spread of the coronavirus in our country.

Our people in townships are taking this lockdown as if it is the festive season, gathering socially, using alcohol, partying, not even taking care to observe the stipulated physical distancing and sanitary measures.

In Khayelitsha, Enkanini in particular, people don’t even take into consideration that one case of coronavirus has been reported in the area. They are just in a festive mood.

I wish the civil leadership can take charge and work side by side with government to eliminate this kind of behaviour by our people. This is really worrying.
