Callers say premier knows 'it's mandatory for ALL of us to wear a mask'
Callers to The Clement Manyathela Show open line criticised Mpumalanga Premier Refilwe Mtshweni-Tsipane for failure to wear a mask during the funeral of Minister in the Presidency Jackson Mthembu in eMalahleni on Sunday.
The Minister of Police Bheki Cele calls for an investigation into that conduct.
Her spokesperson Sibongile Mkani-Mpolweni said the premier’s mask was damaged and she was oblivious of the fact that it had fallen off.
On December 29 there was a gazette issued by the government that says it is mandatory for ALL of us to wear a mask. When the police tell you to wear a mask it is out of courtesy.Caller Veli from Witbank
