Philip Du Plessis started this petition to Cyril Ramaphosa (Pres) and

We , the people of South Africa ask for the immediate relaxing of the draconian regulations and lockdown restrictions  which besides resulting in astronomic financial carnage it is also causing irreparable damage to your popularity  .  Besides the lockdown conditions being an infringement of our basic democratic rights , the overall catastrophic damage caused by it far outweigh any benefits , short , medium or long term. 

Not only financial  ruin to  business owners and their families as many business will not survive , but the domino effect of further job losses and unemployment  and burden of  UIF payments on top of it which the country simply do not have the finances for. 

It also means billions  in lost taxes including , sin tax , fuel levies , VAT , PAYE and Company Taxes which government really cannot afford .

The damage cause by the irrational decisions and regulations governing the lockdown has far reaching implications which will continue long after the Lockdown is lifted 

Besides the far reaching financial implications, accompanied  with lockdown goes animal abuse , family violence , sexual and child abuse , depression causing  mental illness and suicides . Most of these cause lifelong psychological damage and will remain long after the lockdown is over  . 

The costs to finance the military to assist the police is a further financial burden the country simply cannot afford . The people are hungry and frustrated and soon the police and milatary will not be able ro control looting , plundering and riots . This will spill over into the suburbs and voilence  caused by this will outweigh any benefits  the early locksdown had . 

Taking all in consideration we ask for the immediate relaxation of unnecssasry regulations and to allow all economic activity to help ease the financial burden for emplyers and employees alike .  Thie lockdown mostly  affected the middle class , the poor and the poorest of the poor . Your people are  suffering and it’s impossible for you to reach most of them because of ongoing unchecked corruption . 

Mr President be a man of authority , do the right thing and relax the conditions immediatly  !
