Making voices heard

“The entire entertainment industry must join the national shutdown on March 20. It is not an EFF shutdown, it’s for all South Africans. Let’s heed the call and make our voices heard,” Mokoena said.

He also added how the industry has been “hit hard by load-shedding” and “a useless president”.

“On March 20, performing artists must feel free [to] join the national shutdown without fear of intimidation.

Entertainment companies are warned not to intimidate artists, therefore trampling on their right to strike. March 20 is national shutdown day.”
