Zimbabwe Duo’s Show Aborted for Breaking SA Covid-19 Rules

Johannesburg — A concert by Zimdancehall duo, Killer T and Freeman, is among events impacted by a crackdown by authorities against revelers that flouted coronavirus (COVID- 19) regulations in neighbouring South Africa.

The show at the jam-packed Baseline, Newtown in Johannesburg on Good Friday was held amid inadequate sanitizing, masks and social-distancing.

It came to an abrupt end when the South African Police Service (SAPS) intervened and dispersed both artists and revelers.

South African authorities heightened the crackdown against partying and so-called super-spreader this past weekend to prevent a third wave of the COVID-19 in the country worst affected by the pandemic in the continent.

Gauteng, where Johannesburg is located, is the epicentre of the pandemic.

Controversy aside, the Zimbabwean artistic pair rounded-up their musical tour of South Africa with a sterling performance on Saturday night in Kempton Park, east of Johannesburg.

The who-is-who of the entertainment industry among the Zimbabwe Diaspora community in Mzansi attended.

Despite the COVID-19 infection threats, high-spirited pleasure seekers were cheerful, lively, danced, sang and merried when Killer T graced the stage first in this four-hour musical session.

“I’m here to enjoy my Easter, and love these two artists (Killer T and Freeman),” said Zimbabwean businessman, Method Mandebvu of Kew, Johannesburg.
