GEORGE NEWS - The acting mayor of George, Charlotte Clarke, took to Facebook this morning to send out a strong message to George residents to comply with the lockdown regulations and stay at home.
“The Government has put certain measures in place which we have to respect and adhere to. Why is this so difficult to understand? Each one of us has a responsibility to adhere to the laws of our country. Do we even understand the seriousness of the situation that we find ourselves in? This is a health issue that affects EVERY citizen in George. Municipalities cannot take responsibility for every citizen's health, we have a PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY. The Law will be enforced.”
She has confirmed to George Herald that she wrote this message.
She said she is inundated with complaints regarding citizens being irresponsible and not abiding by the laws that were gazetted regarding the coronavirus.
People are carelessly roaming the streets and sidewalks and riding around on bicycles.
