Joining Hands To Inspire The #Each1Feed1 Lockdown Food Distributions

Vision Tactical –

Freedom Day 2020 has been an unfamiliar experience given that we cannot gather with our loved ones and commemorate the day we voted in the country’s first democratic elections in 1994. However it is not so unfamiliar. We arrived at the first democratic elections in South Africa through solidarity against the Apartheid regime. This Freedom Day we continue in that culture of solidarity by staying home and practising a different kind of activism to overcome the COVID-19 crisis.

However, many are struggling at home. Some are starving. Again, it can only be with our culture of solidarity that we can overcome food insecurity in South Africa at this time.

Due to the national lockdown put in place by the President to combat COVID-19, many families are unable to earn an income to feed their families. Some of the worst affected are those that are informally and precariously employed, the elderly and child-headed households. Early Childhood Development (ECD) practitioners who operate informally are some of the worst affected by the loss of income due to the lockdown.

To respond to the increased levels of food insecurity, the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Imbumba Foundation and the Siya Kolisi Foundation have partnered on an initiative called #Each1Feed1. The name of the fund is inspired by the old Congress of South African Students (COSAS) mantra “Each one, teach one” and is adopted in honour of OR Tambo.

Vision Tactical is proud to be associated with all affiliates in the #Each1Feed1 campaign and will be assisting in whichever way possible.

No One Is Above The Law During COVID-19 Lockdown

Vision Tactical – 

Police Minister Bheki Cele says no one will be spared the might of the law if they are found flouting the coronavirus lockdown regulations.

Two Cape Town police officers are expected in court this week after they were caught buying alcohol.

The pair requested a Strand store manager to open the bottle store and proceeded to buy liquor to the value of over R4,000.

They were on duty at the time, stationed at the Delft police station.

Police spokesperson Vish Naidoo said, “Both police officers as well as the manager were arrested and they were taken to court on Thursday. The two officers were granted bail of R1,000 each.”
