South Africans – including some of the biggest stars – are celebrating the news that the country is finally moving to level 1 lockdown, as announced by President Cyril Ramaphosa on Wednesday night…
This means that lockdown restrictions have eased up in a bid to return to the country to a sense of normalcy amid the Covid-19 pandemic.
The new set of regulations include the allowance for international travel, come 1 October, entertainment concerts (provided they abide by a strict set of protocols) as well as an shortened curfew from midnight to 4am.
And stars like Bonang, her bestie Pinky Girl and Ayanda Thabethe were certainly looking forward to booking themselves a first class ticket out of the country….
