Rumours that Matlosana and Rustenburg municipalities may be moved back to Level 4 of lockdown create panic

Rumours that Matlosana (Hartbeesfontein, Klerksdorp, Orkney, Stilfontein) and Rustenburg Local Municipalities might be moved back to Level 4 of lockdown are creating panic. The FF Plus is inundated with queries about the validity of the rumours from concerned businesspeople and residents of the two areas.

The MEC for Health in the North West, Madoda Sambatha, stated on the radio channel RSG, among others, that the provincial government is considering moving Matlosana and Rustenburg back to Level Four due to the high incidence of positive Covid-19 cases in these two regions.

The FF Plus immediately took up the matter with the Premier, Job Mokgoro, to find out exactly what is the provincial government stance on this. The Premier reassured the FF Plus that such a decision has not been taken and that the provincial Covid-19 Command Council does not have the authority to make that decision.

The decision to move certain areas back to a higher level of lockdown can only be taken on national level after conducting a comprehensive consultation process with, among others, businesspeople.

The FF Plus will continue to monitor the situation and will ensure that the inputs of all the relevant sectors are carefully considered before any decisions are made regarding Covid-19 in the North West.
