Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) rejects the President’s announcement late Saturday night where he announced that the country would be moving to level 2 lockdown and relaxation of certain restrictions.

The party says there is no scientific logic to support the government’s suggestion to ease down restrictions.

They also accuse the government and health department of manipulating Covid-19 stats to suit their narrative and so as to paint them as working towards achieving good results.

“There is no legitimate positive signs of a decrease in infections in South Africa and Cyril Ramaphosa in collaboration with the Department of Health have conspired to manipulate data and lie about progress in the fight against Covid-19.”

The party calls for an independent data capturing of stats and for politicians to move away from any data capturing of Covid-19 stats.

“The resulting uplifting of the ban of alcohol and tobacco is a product of data manipulation by leadership which is loyal to business over the lives of people.”
