Lockdown is not working in townships

Lockdown is not working in townships

Ntja Maphella, Johannesburg

I drove through Diepsloot and Alex and what I saw there is the same as what is happening in Thabong, Eldorado Park, eMlazi, Galeshwe, Mdantsane, Mitchell’s Plain, Seshego, Soshanguve and all the townships in Mzantsi.

Churches, sports activities, elections and shebeens must be allowed. The Covid-19 regulations must be lifted.

It is a fact that the country’s majority aren’t observing the regulations. Government must get off its high horse. It is no use feeling important and pretending you are in control when your efforts count for naught.

The country is due for new instruments in its fight against the Covid-19.
