Both Cape Town and Western Cape Government leaders hope their calls to end COVID-19 curbs will be heard.
This comes as the President’s Coordinating Council meets on Wednesday.
The meeting also follows the leak of a seemingly official government memo, suggesting that the mask mandate and the restriction on gatherings will soon be dropped.
But Premier Alan Winde has previously noted that the removal of these and other remaining Covid-19 restrictions is long overdue.
And Cape Town Mayor, Geordin Hill-Lewis, said, “I really welcome the move by the National Government to finally and belatedly list all of the remaining COVID-19 restrictions. This is really important for our economy to start the slow recovery and these moves come sadly far too late. I will be attending the President’s Coordinating Council and I will strongly support this proposal and ask it to be implemented without any further delay”.
