Lockdown will have to be extended if people don’t stay home, warns deputy police minister

Deputy Minister of Police Cassel Mathale has warned the national lockdown will have to be extended if people do not remain inside their homes.

Deputy Minister of Police Cassel Mathale has warned the national lockdown will have to be extended if people do not remain inside their homes, for the remainder of the 21-day restriction period.  He was addressing SAPS members, military police and members of the South African National Defense Force on Wednesday morning. Mathale explained that if the country did not manage to “flatten the curve” of the Covid-19 pandemic, there would be “no other option” but to extend the lockdown. “The regulations are non-negotiable. The virus spreads quickly when people move up and down. South Africans must self-isolate for the remainder of the 21 days, in order to fight the virus.”

He stated the categories of business allowed to work over the lockdown period were obliged to operate within the framework and stipulated times. “Taxis and public transport services must only transport commuters at the designated times in the morning and evening and not at any other time.”  Mathale told SAPS and SANDF members to “make their presence felt” and to tighten controls to ensure that the public adhered to the regulations.
