The impact and effect of unprecedented lock down in South Africa #covid19 #lockdown #DrSinkalaism

Late yesterday morning a young foreign national hung himself in this spot in Sea Point with a dog leash.
He was apparently very thin.
One suspects he was a dog walker and not worked since the start of Lock Down.
As an immigrant in the informal sector, he had no access to UIF, a grant or any kind of welfare.
He couldn’t go home either.
It breaks my heart that his only hope was to end his life.
Lock Down is not right for every country.
Least of all South Africa.
May he be at peace now.
