Despite the contents of an infographic that was tweeted and deleted by the @PresidencyZA account, leisurely travel within the confines of one province is still not permitted.
The Twitter account run by the office of the presidency has had to backtrack after they published an infographic that made it seem as though leisurely travel within the confines of a single province and non-business-related stays at hotels, guest houses and lodges was permitted under the current lockdown level.
“We picked up an error in the previous graphic which suggested that accommodation for leisure travel was permitted. This is not the case,” said the presidency in their tweet.
Here are the activities that are now allowed at Level 3. We picked up an error in the previous graphic which suggested that accommodation for leisure travel was permitted. This is not the case. See this statement for more information: https://t.co/hQnwYUNN6s #StaySafe pic.twitter.com/7t4Q7vxCKl

This comes long after the incorrect graphic was circulated, leading many to believe that leisurely travel was permitted.
@PresidencyZA reiterates @TBCZA view that intra-provincial (within province) leisure travel is permitted under Advanced Level 3 regulations. @Tourism_gov_za @mmKubayiNgubane #SouthAfricaisTravelReady pic.twitter.com/Ouf8xUy0lu

@PresidencyZA Can anyone explain why Pres Cyril Ramaphosa announced that leisure travel inside your province of residence is permitted under the amended level 3 regulations and then contradicted by Tourism Minister Mmamoloko Kubayi-Ngubane? Clarity on this will be appreciated.

I am guessing this was deleted because of the accomodation debacle…I understand the Minister of Tourism said they will issue revised regulations stating that leisure accommodation is not allowed under level 3. https://t.co/CdKH9RWMTh

The truth is, we have to acknowledge the existence of our real-life heroes in the society, because imagine if this man wasn’t around, today it could have been a totally double tragedy, losing both the mother and the kid.
A video of a man who saved a three-year-old from a burning house has since gone viral. Like it’s said “not all heroes wear cape,” this man has proven to be a saviour in the midst of the horrible occurrence. continue reading
