‘state lied about tobacco ban’

The association taking the government to court over the tobacco ban has accused it of inflating the number of people who supported the ban and using literature that does not show the link between cigarette smoking and the Covid-19 coronavirus. The supplementary affidavit submitted by the Fair Trade Independent Tobacco Association (Fita) was in response to a 4 000-page submission by Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, the minister of cooperative governance and traditional affairs, explaining the rationale for the ban. Dlamini-Zuma’s affidavit mentioned that there were 2 000 complaints against the permission of the sale of cigarettes. However, according to Fita, only 1 897 submissions were made. From those, 66.7% had nothing to do with the ban. Fita highlighted this discrepancy as a “lack of attention to detail, which was concerning”. The organisation, through its…

opening schools is ‘reckless’

The planned reopening of schools for pupils in grades 7 and 12 tomorrow requires “divine intervention” as such a move is “reckless” and akin to an act of “criminality”, warn teacher unions and parent bodies. And, they say, doing do will continue to perpetuate inequalities in the country. On the eve of the expected reopening of schools, Basic Education Minister Angie Motshekga has been called on to postpone the date. Yesterday afternoon, unions and representatives of school governing bodies (SGBs) met with Motshekga and the Council of Education Ministers, a group comprising provincial education MECs, to discuss the possibility of postponing the planned reopening. Unions and SGBs have repeatedly voiced their concerns about the lack of the readiness of schools to receive children, warning that a one-size-fit-all approach will not work. They have cited…

anxious south africans not willing to resume normal life

As the country prepares to move to level 3 of the national Covid-19 coronavirus lockdown tomorrow, South Africans appear unwilling to take any unnecessary risks that may put them and their loved ones in danger of infection. This is according to the results of a new nationwide survey conducted by Victory Research for City Press and its sister publication, Rapport. The poll revealed that the majority of the 600 people who took part in the survey preferred a gradual easing of the regulations, with some even indicating that they were not ready to return to the old social, entertainment and education activities they engaged in before the outbreak of the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic. The poll was conducted from May 18 to 27 among a representative demographic sample in urban and rural areas…

lockdown exposes racial prism

The Covid-19 coronavirus has brought to the fore the racial prisms through which South Africans view government’s handling of national affairs. This is according to a nationwide survey conducted by Victory Research for City Press and its sister publication, Rapport. It revealed the stark contrast in the manner in which different racial groups perceive government’s performance in handling the crisis and approval for the way different leaders do their jobs. The City Press/Rapport Covid-19 Survey revealed that black and minority South Africans were not in unison regarding whether or not government has been able to ramp up testing, prepare the health sector for a possible influx of patients and assist those gravely affected by the virus. When asked how well government was doing, following its announcement of a range of measures to combat…

is it my fault that senzo loved me?

TV actress and songbird Kelly Khumalo has dropped a bombshell: She blames Orlando Pirates and Bafana Bafana goalkeeper Senzo Meyiwa’s family for making Mzansi turn and crucify her for a sin she did not commit. On Friday, an emotional Khumalo (35), in an interview on Ezemidlalo Ukhozi FM, shared that it had been almost six years since her boyfriend, Meyiwa, had died, but “it feels like yesterday. My world was torn apart when Senzo died. I never thought something like this would ever happen to me. It was a sudden death, which left me with a wound that won’t heal any time soon,” she said, sobbing. Meyiwa was shot and died at Khumalo’s family home in Vosloorus in October 2014. His killers have still not been arrested. Since his death, his family had…
