AMANDA BLACK’S MESSAGE TO MBUYISENI NDLOZI

The Kahle hitmaker sent a stern message to Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) MP Mbuyiseni Ndlozi, asking him to help the country fight against another lockdown after claims that a fourth wave may be looming. 

Her message was in response to a video of hundreds of EFF supporters gathering at the Nelson Mandela University in Gqeberha in support of the party on 27 October. Worryingly, very few of the supporters were wearing masks.  

“Vaccine passports and mandates because numbers are down, peoples livelihoods still in the red. 

“Clearly there are no longer fears of covid spreading anymore,” wrote the songstress.

Please can you help the citizens of this country fight against another lockdown and claims of a fourth wave looming. Vaccine passports and mandates because numbers are down, peoples livelihoods still in the red.
Clearly there are no longer fears of covid spreading anymore. https://t.co/yJhByYRyB5

‘THEY DON’T SEEM TO BE WORRIED ABOUT SPREADING COVID’

After roasting Ndlozi, Amanda Black felt the need to address the country’s top three political parties — African National Congress (ANC), Democratic Alliance (DA) and EFF — warning them that South Africa’s fight against COVID-19 is far from over…yet thousands of South Africans still gather at political rallies across the country. 

“They say a fourth wave is looming when numbers are down. Rallies are full, people’s livelihoods are still in the red.They are promoting and enforcing vaccine mandates and passports. As seen below, they don’t seem to be worried about the spreading of COVID during elections,” wrote the singer-songwriter. 

“Hopefully we won’t be lockdown this festive season. And COVID will be over without people loosing any more of their lives, loved ones, livelihoods, and peace of mind.”

Hopefully we wont be lockdown this festive season.

When South Africa hit Level 1 on Thursday 30 September, many South Africans raised their eyebrows. Speculation has been rife that the country was moved to Level 1 so politicians could campaign for their political parties.

Reacting to the news, Queen Sono actress and TV presenter Pearl Thusi wrote: “Weird how we’re at level 1 and they’re being nice just before voting time… Or am I reading too much into it?”

Another tweep wrote: “Level 1 has absolutely nothing to do w COVID, they just want to campaign and do their thing in peace”
