Children never have enough in the way of snacks, that’s the real cost of having them… not the education and health costs. Should governments save artists? Is compliance good, and should you rat on your neighbours who don’t comply 100% with the lockdown?
What’s it like to test positive for Covid-19, and what is the mental side of being diagnosed with such a virus? With a surname like Mandela, there is an honour and lineage of greatness to carry.

Leigh-Ann Mol gets very real with us about how she’s dealing with #Lockdown2020. If you are feeling pressure to be productive in lockdown, don’t… the secret is to always be on the hunt for a nap.

Those in essential services are on the front line and deserve our respect for their selfless natures. Gert-Johan Coetzee explains the power of a celeb wearing a garment which he has designed. The South African government is not messing around when it comes to the lockdown, an essential services civilian was searched 5 times on their commute to work – luckily they had all the essential documents.

Are we already living in a zombie nation, or are people just desperate for that last can of baked beans because of the #CovidLockdown? If you have a Xhosa boyfriend, should you be bringing him home to share the family bunker? And when should parents kick their children out for good, for their own good?
25.03.20 Pt 2 – Social media has ironically become a cesspool in a time when people are forced to use it to be social… maybe we should return to cat videos and nothing more.
