Former president Jacob Zuma's spokesperson, Mzwanele Manyi has hit out at Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs minister, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma after she announced the extension of the Disaster Management Act.

Since lockdown began in South Africa, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has been accused of using too much power to continue extending the lockdown. Several organisations including Afriforum at some point took the minister to court challenging some of the lockdown regulations.

After Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma announced the extension of the Disaster Management Act, Mzwanele Manyi hits out stating that there was absolutely no need for government to continue extending the lockdown.

"Absolutely no reason for South Africa to be under Disaster Management Act. What Disaster?" Manyi argued.

South Africa is currently tackling the Omicron variant, but government stated that they have been monitoring it's infection patterns and seems they have everything under control. But the extension of the Disaster Management Act announced by Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma led many to question whether it is still necessary of government is now using these lockdown restrictions to control and manipulate it's citizens.

The Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Dr Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma gazetted the extension of the National State of Disaster on Covid-19 until 15 February 2022.
