FEDHASA welcomes President’s address

As FEDHASA, we are absolutely thrilled with President Ramaphosa’s address this evening. We are on the same lines with him on the fact that we have to live with COVID and not let it ruin our economy, our lives, and our livelihoods. We really applaud him for the stance. We hope that all South Africans will embrace what he said and use all the tools at our disposal – from vaccination, to hand washing, to masks, to social distancing – to be able to continue operating under Level 1, and keep our economy open, especially for hospitality and tourism.

We applaud our president with regards to the stern demand he made of the international community that have red-listed us to remove us from any red lists. We hope that the countries will respect his requests and that it will happen shortly.
