Limpopo Premier, Chupu Mathabatha said on Thursday his government arranged COVID-19 conversation with SABC radio stations to remind the citizens of the province that the deadly pandemic is alive and ferocious.
Mathabatha warned listeners in a simulcast broadcast by Thobela FM, Phalaphala FM, and Munghana Lonene FM at the SABC auditorium in Polokwane that the coronavirus fight is not yet over.
“This talk is about highlighting the important milestones we have registered in the fight against coronavirus and the challenges we still face,” Mathabatha said.
He warned Limpopo residents about the dangers, saying they should not ignore wearing masks, maintain social distancing, and always wash hands with soap and water or use alcohol-based disinfectants.
“In other some parts of the country we see the number of coronavirus cases increasing daily.
What we are experiencing in some parts of the world shows us that if we forget the message, we will return to a high infection rate. Therefore, the COVID-19 messages mustn’t die as long as the virus is still alive,” Mathabatha said.
The Premier also acknowledge October as the month of transport and to honour senior citizens.
“We congratulate all drivers of public transport. Taxis, buses, trains, and trucks drives. They are men and women who drive the economy of our country to our preferred destination and deserve our praise. We are forever indebted to all the drivers who transport workers and the poor from their residential areas to work in the morning and return them home safely in the evening. I know it is not an effortless task, but you always win.”
“But we can’t celebrate our grandfathers and mothers until the world is at peace. Today we even kill police officers like animals.
