Its surprising how people defy lock down regulations when its meant to protect them

by Rapule Moiloa in Tembisa Ekurhuleni

I have been asking myself questions with regards to how people treat the lock down. I wonder why during times of war people are not forced to stay indoors but do so voluntarily without complaining about their freedom of movement but the same people need to be forced to stay indoors when it is their health at risk. On Friday 24 April, the police were chasing people running informal small businesses out side Tembisa plaza and one lady who sells spinach took her stock and ran as fast as she could avoiding being fined but she still insisted that she is going to continue selling even if the police confiscate her stock it’s still fine because she wants money. To me it showed that people are not respecting the rules and regulations of the lock down.
