Eyewitness News reporter Kgomotso Modise gives details of EFF virtual press conference.

Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) leader Julius Malema says the government has put the lives of the poor black majority in danger of contracting the coronavirus in places like schools and workplaces.

Speaking at a virtual press conference on Thursday from the party's headquarters, Malema says the move down to level 3 of the lockdown was premature and the country was not ready to do so.

Eyewitness News reporter Kgomotso Modise has more.

He has spoken very strongly against financial service providers saying that it should have been an official regulation to ensure that all financial providers are compelled to give all deserving workers that relief that some banks have given.

He appealed to religious leaders to exercise that caution saying that people can pray and worship at their homes they don't need to be in groups of 50.

He is not mincing his words that people are going to die as we continue to relax these regulations.
