With all the regulations taking place and even the banning of alcohol ”with immediate effect” by the president, Mzansi celebs are also calling for the schools to shut down during the Covid-19 lockdown.
Rami Chuene, Mona Monyane and Simphiwe Dana are among the entertainers who have urged Mzansi government to reverse the decision to open schools during the outbreak.
Veteran actress Rami Chuene suggested that it is now time to address the issue following President Cyril Ramaphosa’s latest nation address on Sunday. “Now that we’ve sobered up, the issue with our children being back at school…? Are we ever gonna address it? Everyone must stay home except students. Okay.”
Singer songwriter, Simphiwe Dana pleaded with government to close schools. She said government is playing ‘Russian roulette’ with children’s lives. Simphiwe believes that the kids are “bringing this virus home”. “Please close schools down. You’re playing Russian roulette with our kids’ lives and by extension our lives. @lesufi pls focus on gazetting this. Our kids are bringing this virus home.”
Actress Mona Monyane also believes that the reopening of schools is a “bad” move. “Kids infect each other anyway, pandemic aside… Flu, pneumonia, chicken pox etc… With an overwhelmed health system, where will parents take them when they fall sick? Come on!”
