WATCH | President to address nation on Monday, not Sunday as initially expected

22 March, 07:15 PM

Jackson Mthembu, Minister in the Presidency, announced at a press briefing on Sunday that President Cyril Ramaphosa will not address the country tonight.

This because his meeting in the National Command Council is expected to run well into the night. 

In this meeting, the president will receive an update on the novel coronavirus outbreak, progress and challenges related to implementation of the recently promulgated regulations on the state of disaster and other measures to protect the country. He will also be briefed on the economic impact.

The council will consider whether the measures that are currently in place to contain the spread of the virus are sufficient and what further measures are required.
