JOHN STEENHUISEN: We have a right to choose to get on with our lives
The ANC’s national hard lockdown must end immediately – we have a right to choose to get on with our lives
The DA has always offered a detailed alternative approach when calling for an end to the ANC’s hard national lockdown. Our aim has been to save lives and livelihoods by proposing solutions that strike a balance between Covid-19 and other risks to society, and which are implementable and sustainable over at least a two-year period.
Our position is drawn from and aligned with expert opinion. So it’s not surprising that the government’s own medical advisers are now criticising the hard lockdown as "unscientific and nonsensical"...
