While tens of thousands of citizens vehemently oppose government plans to make permanent the extraordinary “State of Disaster” regulations, Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma announced on 29 March 2022 plans to end the current “State of Disaster,” potentially by 5 April – but extend regulations for 30 days.
Please note: The “Health Act Amendment” was published in the Government Gazette on 14 March by the Minister of Health. Deadline for comments (30 days) is therefore 15 April 2022.
The “Disaster Management Amendment” was published in the Government Gazette on 29 March by COGTA Minister, Dlamini-Zuma. Deadline for comments (48 hours) is 1 April 2022.
Technically, ending the “State of Disaster” while maintaining illogical restrictive Covid-19 regulations for 30 days is unlawful. Government invites the public to comment on this new development within 48 hours. The quickest way to comment is by accessing this form.
What Dlamini-Zuma is attempting is to continue weilding exotraordinary “State of Disaster” powers granted by the ‘Disaster Managment Act’ even after the “State of Disaster” ends.
I opposed all transitional regulations because no “State of Disaster” currently exists in SA. Government must end the “State of Disaster” including all related regulations and protocols.
No government must be granted permanent authority to control access and oversight of Churches in South Africa. This is a grave and unprecedented threat to religious freedoms.
Many were confused by Dlamini-Zuma’s recent announcement, mistakenly believing she reduced the time for comments on the “Amendment on the National Health Act” to 48 hours.
This precipitated a massive run on the sapublicspeaks platform – overwhelming the site. Thankfully, the tech experts are busy resolving the problem and will have it up soon.
If you cannot access the SAPublicSpeaks site, please comment on the dearsouthafrica.co.za/health-act-amendment site or email your submission directly to Ms Tsakani Furumele at email@example.com The deadline remains 15 April
Veteran journalist, Brian Pottinger investigated government’s fear-driven and illogical Covid-19 campaign and makes several startling observations about the ANC regime’s tactics and methodology in his well-researched article “SA’s Covid-19 response just got weirder.”
The most alarming revelation is that government quietly “branded SARSCoV2 a ‘Group 3 Hazardous Biological Agent’, which widens the scope of employers to enforce vaccine mandates.” It appears, the ANC regime is advancing big pharma’s vaccine agenda.
Despite credible studies proving much of the hysteria that accompanied the pandemic by corrupt politicians, “medical experts” and a complicit media were false, the ANC regime is still pushing the now debunked PCR tests, mandatory vaccinations and mask wearing.
Pottinger writes, “Yet, incredibly and despite this long litany of bad science and worse faith during the SARSCoV2 outbreak, the memo seems not to have reached President Ramaphosa. His authoritarian new regulations now seek to hardwire arbitrary and dictatorial powers into the future life of the country on the back of a comprehensively and maliciously misrepresented viral outbreak. Why?”
The answer may lie in the ANC regime’s natural inclination to use every opportunity – even a national health crisis – for self-enrichment. Who can forget the ANC looting frenzy triggered by the the allocation of more than R500 billion to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.
Pottinger suggests SA may become a dumping ground for obsolete vaccines, which may explain governments absurd vaccine push despite growing questions about its efficacy.
Apparently, 800,000 Pfizer vaccines will reportedly expire at the end of March 2022.
The proposed “Amendment to the National Health Act” is the most dangerous development in our democratic history because it grants an irredeemably corrupt and grossly incompetent government extraordinary powers to control and manipulate the public as it sees fit.
“State of Disaster” restrictions must end immediately because no state of disaster currently exists in SA. The Dept of Health must update the public regularly with credible Covid-19 developments. However, citizens must be trusted to make their own health decisions.
