Yes, there’s a ‘family meeting’ in South Africa tonight! President Cyril Ramaphosa will address the nation on developments in SA’s Covid-19 response at 20h00 this evening, Monday 11 January 2021.

South Africans have been waiting and wondering when the President would next address the nation, following meetings in recent days of the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC), the President’s Coordinating Council (PCC) and Cabinet.

President Ramaphosa also hosted a virtual engagement on Sunday 10 January 2020 between government and interfaith leaders on the COVID-19 Risk Adjusted Strategy which is an inclusive national effort that enables adaptive responses to the shifting pandemic.

This engagement focused on the unfolding pandemic in the country and on the continent, including efforts to secure vaccines for all.


The President’s address will be broadcast and streamed on a range of platforms that are accessible to South Africans and international audiences.
