Will he, or won’t he?

That is the question on every South African’s mind as President Cyril Ramaphosa ponders whether to extend the 21-day coronavirus lockdown next Thursday.

Why do you feel this decision is such a monumental one for the leadership of South Africa? What are the consequences of both options and which one do you feel the presidency will go with? Do you think support of the lockdown will wane if he takes the decision to extend it? What would the impact of this extension be to the everyday lives of South Africans?
