Thandiswa Mazwai calls on government to act against panic buying

Musician Thandiswa Mazwai has called for the government to take action against panic buying in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak.

As Covid-19 cases increases in South Africa and other Africans countries, some people clearing out shelves at supermarkets, as a fears for food shortage in coming days.

“This should be a crime at a time like this. Government, please stop this now. All these rich folks with access cannot take up everything at the expense of a large majority of poor people in this country. No!” Thandiswa wrote on Twitter, sharing a picture of people queuing with groceries.

Businessman Vusi Thembekwayo also slammed those who were buying out of fear. He said they should think about others.

“Dear Makro, the responsible thing to do is to limit the quantity a single consumer or single household can buy so there is enough for everybody. Somebody tag new Massmart SA CEO Mitchell Slape and Doug Jones, CEO of Wholesale Business. We must think for our fellow citizens.”

This panic buying is not started in South Africa, it also happening to western countries like US and UK, as citizens fear of shortage of food when this pandemic took the whole country.
