As we are all aware, our president addressed us as a nation to discuss the way forward for the country. He stated:
“Fellow South Africans,
This evening, I stand before you to ask you to endure even longer.
I have to ask you to make even greater sacrifices so that our country may survive this crisis and so that tens of thousands of lives may be saved.
After careful consideration of the available evidence, the National Coronavirus Command Council has decided to extend the nation-wide lockdown by a further two weeks beyond the initial 21 days.
This means that most of the existing lockdown measures will remain in force until the end of April….
…As we walk this road together, as we struggle to defeat this pandemic, we remain strong and united and resolved.
Much is being asked of you, far more than should ever be asked.
But we know that this is a matter of survival, and we dare not fail.
We shall recover.
We shall overcome.
May God bless South Africa and protect her people.
I thank you.”
-President Cyril Ramaphosa, 09 April 2020

Our youth cannot grow up with out you or your family, your parents, your friends, family friends, friends from congregations. They need you. So during this time, stay safe, stay home if you are not an essential service and remember, just as scary as this is for us all, it is ten times more scary for our children. So have fun, spend quality time with your family and most importantly laugh as much as you can.
