DA leader requested Ramaphosa to end lockdown. John Steenhuisen says the lockdown is doing more harm to the economy than Covid-19.
He said that if president Cyril does not lift lockdown, the people of South African will lift it themselves, as he implied they are tired of this hard lockdown.
”People will die because of lockdown, not by Covid-19, most of people are starved at home and the economy is scrapped,” said DA Leader.
The official opposition believes government has no justification to keep the country on lockdown.
Steenhuisen says President Cyril Ramaphosa must do the right thing and reopen economy.
The DA leader requested Ramaphosa and he is adamant the level four lockdown is doing more harm than good. That is the reason why Ramaphosa has to lift lockdown in time for it is not working for people.
“We have replaced it with an even bigger threat of our making. The real tragedy here is no longer the coronavirus but the lockdown itself.”
Steenhuisen says Ramaphosa must end it immediately, rather people of this country will end it themselves.
“This lockdown is going to cost many more lives than it can save.”
He says the lockdown is making things worse.
Steenhuisen says South Africans are tired of the lockdown.
