TV personality and actress Ayanda Thabethe is the latest mzansi celeb to question government’s lockdown regulations, claiming that often the message coming from leadership was conflicting.
Ayanda weighed in on a debate about the regulations this week after author Khaya Dlanga posted a statement on Instagram calling on the government to “supply rationales behind certain decisions”, arguing that it can lead to buy-in from the public.
“As people become increasingly frustrated with the way the government communicates needs a rethink,” Khaya said.
Even the Sunday Times has now reported that the Govt is keeping some information under wraps of the Covid-19 virus to avoid panic.
The move to keep the data out of the public eye comes after an earlier model on which the strict lockdown was based was heavily criticised.
Ayanda said she felt the same way after hearing the president speak recently.
“That was one of my comments after the president gave his address. There was a lot of information missing that he needed to supply, given the context in which he relayed that we should engage.”
She said there were often conflicting messages from the to.
“There are lots of conflicting messages like children going to school while parents are expected to stay at home. There needs to be clarity and rationale behind these decisions so they are understood by all,” she said.
Ayanda has been vocal about the lockdown regulations in recent weeks.
After the most recent address by President Cyril Ramaphosa, she said: “I don’t know how I feel after that address. I know the ministers will expand but I was hoping for more details from the president himself.”
Rapper Gigi Lamayne says her life has changed for the better since she visited a spiritual healer.
In a thread on Twitter this week, Gigi explained that she was not one to consult a spiritual healer before, but now has a deep connection with her ancestors and God since embarking on her spiritual journey.
