A caller in Moletsane, Soweto, says even the bottle stores are open and people are buying alcohol.

As South Africa enters into day 1 of the 21-day lockdown, many callers on the Eusebius McKaiser show complain of lack of law enforcement on the streets.

President Cyril Ramaphosa announced the lockdown as a measure to try and curb the spread of COVID-19.

Meanwhile, Health Minister Zweli Mkhize announced that the country has recorded its first two deaths due to COVID-19.

I am a granny of 83 years, I couldn't get my essentials yesterday so this morning I went to the Pick n Pay which is in Moletsane in Soweto. To my surprise, the shop was so full and there were no police or soldiers anywhere. No control of the people entering the shop. The bottle store next to the shop is also operating as usual. People are buying alcohol and putting in their boot.

Mrs Melato, Caller

I am in Diepsloot. Life is normal here. People are going up and down and when you talk to them the say coronavirus is in Sandton and the white areas. My shop is open and I thought people will just buy bread and go home but they are roaming the streets and even the car wash is open.

Thomas, Caller

I am so overwhelmed and shocked about the people that passed away. I am in Sebokeneg and taxis are operating as usual and I am asking myself if we are taking this seriously as South Africans.

Nthabiseng, Caller
