President Cyril Ramaphosa will once again be sitting the nation down tonight to deliver another address. This could be about possible tougher lockdown regulations.
With the current adjusted lockdown level 3 we're currently on expiring this week, this address is expected.
The address will be broadcasted at 8PM and will be streamed on a range of platforms that are accessible to South Africans and international audiences.
President Cyril Ramaphosa will address the nation at 20h00 today, Monday 11 January 2021, on developments in relation to the country’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic.
The address follows meetings with the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC), the President’s Coordinating Council (PCC), and Cabinet.
President Ramaphosa also hosted a virtual engagement between government and interfaith leaders which could mean that changes in restrictions concerning religious gatherings could be seen.
The public has also been speculating that the tobacco ban will once again be put into place as government went to court to appeal it's decision that the ban was unconstitutional.
With high infection rates still being recorded and hospitals being overwhelmed in certain parts of the country, we are yet to see what else the President has in store for us, with many South Africans fearing the return of a hard lockdown.
