South Africa’s president disciplines minister breaking lockdown

South African president Cyril Ramaphosa has sent communications minister Stella Ndabeni-Abrahams on a two-month leave for violating a government-imposed lockdown meant to curb the spread of coronavirus.

Ndabeni-Abrahams was caught having lunch at the home of former deputy minister of higher education Mduduzi Manana, violating a government ban on social activity until April 16.

Manana posted photos of the encounter on Instagram, infuriating social media users who called on president Ramaphosa to take stern action.

“As to allegations that the minister violated the lockdown regulations, the law should take its course,” presidential spokesperson Khusela Diko said in a statment on Wednesday.

The minister will not receive pay for one of the two months on forced leave.
