Clement Manyathela chats to the alliance's national spokesperson Theo Malele on how the alliance will respond to the pandemic.

It is safe to say that we have not had a coordinated approach on how to deal with COVID-19 given the fact that we have not spoken to the government as yet.

The press briefing was the alliance's initiative on how to curb the spread, he says.

We are willing to engage with the government at its earliest convenience. The minister of transport has not been forthright with this pandemic. We urge people to avoid touching at all cost and commuters who are unwell must avoid getting onto taxis.
