    South Africa is moving to level 4 tomorrow, YET we are NOW going under stricter curfews and laws and they are rolling out 73 000 additional soldiers, at a cost of R4.5 billion. All while people are dying of hunger. If they protest, they are shot at. Some areas have not received food parcels since the start of lockdown (5 WEEKS!!!) And we have ministers overriding our president on decisions!!! We hardly have any numbers to cough at… Yes they are using corona to take away our rights and bring in a dictatorship.

    She asks the right question but she isn’t as aggressive as Mr Tim Sebastian. She should be a bit more like him or aggressive in her own way. ?

    Great work. Deserves applaud. Informative. High quality discussion.

    Ms Kelly, beautiful, armed with tough questions and Ken Roth responding confidently without faltering leaves slight doubt that the questionnaire was share.

    None the less ?? Great Work.

    The real problem for authoritarian rule is access, when people are not able to be free than human passion is lost and so is the want to earn and spend to achieve those dreams…

    Finally somebody pointing to the real cause of the pandemic. However, calling HU a "dictatorship" is not only misleading, it is far-left disinformation. There was no "power grab" at all.
