Thandiswa Mazwai Comes With Solutions For The Homeless Amid National Lockdown – The Corona Virus Outbreak has been disadvantaged to the majority of South Africa.
It is no secret that the 21-day lockdown will continue to affect the economy and the poor will further be placed at a disadvantage.
The iconic, singer Thandiswa Mazwai has been at the forefront and using her platform to bring awareness to those in need of assistance during the outbreak, how people faced losing their homes as they could not afford to pay rent or their bonds. This scenario became a reality for a follower of the singer who reached out to her for help.
Unable to go back home the tweep, who described himself as a hardworking artist, reached out to Thandiswa hoping for assistance. The tweep explained that he was renting a room and now didn’t have any plan after failing to make rent.
Thandiswa took to her TL to ask for information regarding all the homeless shelters that have been made available since lockdown was initiated.
A lot of people shared lists of the shelters they knew about and Thandiswa urged everybody who suddenly found themselves without a roof over their heads to make use of these places.
“If you find yourself homeless, here are some numbers to call or places to go for some emergency assistance. I think these are for men mostly, but women can find someone to help at the numbers below,” she advised.
Earlier this week, the songstress used her platform to appeal to President Cyril Ramaphosa and the government to consider making it legislation for financial institutions to act with mercy and fairness towards homeowners and people renting homes who have been affected by the lockdown.
