It seems rivers and dams will be replacing beaches in Mzansi. Citizens are saying the cops should stay away since the president only mention that we stay away from the beach.
“Police should stay away from rivers and dams as Ramaphosa said nothing about those,” said one citizen.
This after President Cyril Ramaphosa announced on Monday, 14 December that
all beaches in the Eastern Cape and the Garden Route district will be closed from 16 December to 3 January, while KZN beaches will be closed on 16, 25, 26, and 31 December, as well as 1, 2, and 3 January.
But it seems Mzansi people have an ace up their sleeves.
Videos and pictures circulated on social media, showing people having fun at rivers and dams.
