DJ Cleo Speaks On The Ignorance Of Locals In Following Instructions Amid National Lockdown – Musician, Deejay and Award-winning entertainer DJ Cleo has lamented against those who have disregarded the government’s instructions to stay indoors during the 21-day national lockdown.
President Cyril Ramaphosa announced the lockdown in the previous work, 27th March 2020 to contain the spread of Covid-19 in SA.
President further EXPLAINED that only those who were providing or receiving essential services would be allowed out of their house. Since the lockdown came into effect at midnight last Thursday, social media has been filled with pictures and videos of people disobeying the president’s orders.
DJ Cleo in an interview this week revealed that he was doing his best to stay indoors although mentioned he was to see so many who weren’t.
“You look at social media and there are videos of people, especially in the hood, people who are not taking this thing (Covid-19) seriously. Some of them are vocal about it.”
He said there were a number of reasons for people defying the lockdown.
“I don’t know what it is. Maybe part of it is ignorance, another part is lack of knowledge. You also have to look at the quality of education people are given and comprehension skills. How much do you understand of the message?”
“We live in an age of fake wokeness and sort of warped freedoms of speech. I know how social media can be and I would rather let someone who is in a position to speak out, talk. I would rather sit down with experts and officials and speak as a layman.”
