Buhle Mda Confused By The President’s Implementation Of Essential service Running Amid Lockdown – Musician, Buhle Mda and Native Rhythms founder Velile Sithole ignited controversy when they traded dialogue amid a conversation on the 21-day Covid-19 lockdown.
President Cyril Ramaphosa publicised a 21-day lockdown on Monday evening to attempt to regulate the escalation of Covid-19 in SA.
It was announced that the lockdown will take effect from Thursday, 27th March 2020 at midnight, with only workers in essential services being allowed out the house to work. Buhle, through her spicy alter ego Sis Getty, asked if robots would be working in those sectors.
Taking to the comments section, Velile claimed the Buhle was being “slow” and offered her some advice to get her affairs in order for the lockdown.
“Let’s all agree that you are slow ke. Essential services will operate because we have to eat, bank, get medical treatment and our waste picked up. Call Ramaphosa if you have a problem. For now, please call Samro as a composer and get [an] advance for your compositions and call your bank and arrange a relief if you are a business.
“Call your publisher and get your money for royalties not paid and record label (that’s me) and see if you have any royalties you can be paid as well as Chu’s school and tell them you need relief for school fees. Thanks bye.”
