Ramaphosa Will Address The Nation Tonight

South Africa is scheduled to sit down for a family meeting tonight as the President will be addressing the nation. This address comes after Ramaphosa held meetings with the National Coronavirus Command Council.

President Cyril Ramaphosa is set to address the nation tonight at 7:30pm.

This address follows meetings in recent days of the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC), the President’s Coordinating Council (PCC) and Cabinet.

“As South Africa rolls out its national COVID-19 vaccination programme, government and social partners are continuously monitoring infection, treatment and patient recovery rates, as well as compliance with health regulations and other prevention measures,” the President’s Office said.

With the Easter weekend coming up, South Africans might hear of some changes to the curfew, the size limits at churches and the alcohol ban.

The Cabinet has previously expressed its concern that some South Africans are carrying on as if COVID-19 no longer exists while the government works tirelessly to curb the further spread of the deadly virus.  

These include practising social distancing, wearing masks in public, washing of hands with soap and water and alcohol-based sanitiser. All South Africans are urged to follow these safety protocols.

The President’s address will be broadcast live and streamed on a range of platforms that are accessible to South Africans and international audiences.
