Live stream: Dlamini-Zuma reveals Level 4 lockdown plans on Wednesday
Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma will update the nation on how Level 4 of lockdown will be implemented going forward: Catch the live stream here.
This promises to be the big one: COGTA Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma will deliver an address to the nation on Wednesday evening – via a live stream and televised broadcast – alongside her fellow National Command Council representatives. This will be to update us all on what restrictions will be lifted during Level 4 of lockdown, and at what time.
Level 4 lockdown details to be revealed
On Tuesday, a briefing regarding South Africa’s economic policy during this global health crisis proved to be a non-starter. Very little information was revealed about how life changes after Friday’s deadline: On 1 May, some restrictions will be slightly eased, signalling the first part of Mzansi’s economic recovery.
We know that cigarettes will be on sale once more, and that South Africans will be allowed to leave their homes for the purpose of daily exercise. And that’s about it, really. Dlamini-Zuma needs to deliver the details, as there are little over 24 hours before SA enters its new phase of lockdown.

What time will Dlamini-Zuma address the nation on Wednesday 29 April?
It’s always a keen source of interest when these briefings get announced – what time can we expect to hear from the minister? It’s 18:00 in the diary, and we aren’t expecting any hold-ups or delays. Of course, this may change over the course of the day: The following statement on the address was issued earlier this afternoon:
“The Minister of Social Development, Ms Lindiwe Zulu will elaborate on the socio-economic relief interventions. Following this, members of the National Command Council, led by Minister of Co-operative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, will also give a detailed briefing on the regulations relating to the COVID-19 Level 4 restrictions.”Government statement on the upcoming briefing
