Message from the KZN Legislature on the COVID-19 pandemic
MESSAGE FOR THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
As an oversight institution that promotes public education in its constitutional mandate of law-making, oversight and public involvement, the KZN Legislature is focusing on monitoring the effectiveness of government’s efforts in fighting the COVID-19 pandemic facing our communities. We are encouraging citizens to work with their public representatives through Constituency Offices to ensure that as communities, we make it easy for government agencies to do their work to protect us all as a nation.
The Lockdown protocols announced by the President are to be overseen continuously, but the Legislature on its own may not be adequate without the active support and participation of the citizens. The Legislature therefore invites us all as responsible citizens, to play an oversight role on each other in our communities. To ensure community based oversight, we should report any observed transgressions of these lockdown protocols to authorities.
We also invite communities to send inputs on how best the COVID-19 protocols can be enhanced even through our law-making processes.
We encourage our Members and staff to be responsible during the lockdown period and beyond to ensure the safety of their families. They should always take all the necessary precautions by doing the following:
• Wash your hands regularly
• Practice good personal hygiene
• Do not share food and utensils
• See a Doctor if you are unwell
