How would you rate President Cyril Ramaphosa’s announcement on Sunday 24 May? Was it better or worse than what you expected?

Well it was exactly as expected. I didn't even need to watch it. With rain and floods coming to the Western Cape tonight things are going to get pretty interesting.

Watch, by the time the level 3 regulations are due to come in on the 1st, they'll decide to keep all the metro's (centers of economic activity) at level 4

It was better than I expected. The economy mostly opened up and more closely resembles what we see in other countries.

I hope there are no surprises in the regulations.
Which what we should've had for level 5.

Probably one of the better presented speeches. Someone mentioned it might've been recorded - kinda seemed like it.

Exactly as expected.

But I expected that he would be ultra-conservative. I do not smoke, so do not give a rat's ass about it being for sale or not. What I do care about is that the money trail of black market ciggies going to someone NDZ has an interest in. She is conflicted. And somehow, this entangles the Prez.

Banning smokes does not change the health of a smoker in weeks or months. This is pathetic. So while the economy may be opened a little, there were idle threats (expected) and the continued ban of tobacco products (expected). Poor all round (expected).

It's simply a case of party over country once again, this holds true for the reason she's a minister in the first place!

I glimpsed at his 'State of Covid' tonight and all I heard was Cape Town.

I managed to keep a straight face throughout the speech so yeah, better than expected.
