Lock down is something new for most South Africans and some are wondering if the rules apply to them or not.
In Jeffreys Bay, two local surfers were fines R 5000 each after they went surfing at Supertubes on Sunday and were caught by the law enforcement officials. Locals are allegedly looking to have a word with a foreign surfer who broke the rules and went surfing last Friday.
Following several enquiries about residents being able to walk or jog within their security estates/complexes, the South African Police have advised the following:
The Regulations also apply to people living within estates/complexes meaning NO walking, jogging or walking of pets within closed estates/complexes is allowed.
All estate/complex managers must assist by ensuring that these regulations are enforced with immediate effect.
“The fundamental purpose of Lockdown is to drastically reduce the movement of people in order to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus.
Your assistance in this regard will be highly appreciated,” said the Police in a statement.
