Reaction and analysis to President Ramaphosa’s Level 3 lockdown amendments

13 July 2020 7:28 AM

The State of National Disaster has been extended until mid-August, alcohol ban has been reinstated with immediate effect, and there will be no movement between 9PM and 4am. This was the announcement made by the President last night. The president also took the time to bemoan those who ignore the regulations and downplaying the seriousness of the virus.

South Africa can also expect 40000 to 50000 deaths by the end of the year, according to scenario planners and the President has raised concern over the lack of critical beds, despite this worrying picture, the country will remain on level 3. Are these the steps in the right direction?

Africa speaks to Professor Alex Van Den Heever, Social Security Systems Administration Chair, Wits School of Governance.

Municipal readiness for mass burials: What are the alternatives?

10 July 2020 8:34 AM

The Gauteng Department of Health now says it has not dug up over a million graves but that municipalities have the collective capacity of more than million graves. The City of Joburg also clarified on Joanne Joseph’s show that the burial sites and graves are not limited to COVID-19 related deaths.

 For many years now there have been concerns that municipalities are running out of burial space, and with the COVID-19 set to peak, and death numbers continuing to climb steadily. There are growing concerns about the availability of burial sites, burial health and safety protocols in the event of a COVID-19 related death, and burial alternatives to consider.

Bongani joined by Pepe Dass, Chairperson of the SA Cemeteries Association.

Company which was awarded scooter tender in the Eastern Cape speaks out

10 July 2020 7:14 AM

The 10 million rand scooter project in the Eastern Cape raised many eyebrows after being launched last month. There appeared to be confusion about the function of these scooters was. Was it really meant to transport patients in rural areas or to deliver medicine in these far-flung areas? In his response to a Parliamentary question from the DA, Health Minister has now made an about-turn from his June statement that the motorbikes can be used for emergency transportation of patients to the nearest clinic, to now saying that the motorbikes are not fit for transportation.

 So then what are they? Let’s find out from the company awarded to the R10 million tender to manufacture these scooters. They have been manufacturing these motorbike sidecar ambulances for the past 15 years, African markets, Middle East and Asia.

Bongani joined by Brian Harmse, owner of Fabkomp.

The prevalence of identity theft on social media

9 July 2020 9:10 AM

Just how prevalent and serious is identity theft on social media? And what does it mean? What can you do if someone has hijacked your identity on social media? Last week we took a call off-air from someone accusing prominent entrepreneur, Lynette Ntuli, of scamming him through Bitcoin on Facebook. The conversation started on Facebook, where someone purporting to be Lynette Ntuli invited him to Bitcoin trading and subsequently depositing thousands of rands.

 It turns out that it was not Lynette Ntuli, but someone using her identity on Facebook to swindle money from unsuspecting users. After following following up with Lynette, we learned that this is one of many such incidents she is dealing with. How common is identity theft on social media?

Bongani joined by Lynette Ntuli, Property and Infrastructure Entrepreneur and Emma Sadleir, Social Media law specialist.
