I have been thrilled to see so many Western Cape residents cycling and running on beaches. The police have their hands full at the moment, arresting walkers and cyclists – no doubt enjoying the thrill of the chase. It pains me to say this but I have a new begrudging respect for cyclists who disregard the exercise hours. I still consider cycling to be an abhorrent sport, infested by lycra-clad road fascists but I am willing to align myself with their mission.

We all know that the lockdown is completely illegitimate. We all know that the models have been wrong. We all know that the WHO and the international governance agencies are corrupt. It is time to end the lockdown and the Western Cape must be the hot spot of civil disobedience.

The DA has ruled the  Western Cape for over a decade. It is high time that they act on behalf of the residents of the Western Cape. I have a plan.

The DA should do the following:

  • Tell the ANC that the residents of the Western Cape will abide by WHO recommendations such as social distancing and sanitizing.
  • The Western Cape will follow the Swedish model of curbing the pandemic.
  • All businesses in the Western Cape will be opened with immediate effect, with regulations on sanitizing and social distancing.
  • The sale of alcohol, cigarettes and e-commence will commence in an unfettered manner.
  • Residents can exercise whenever and wherever they please.
  • The SANDF and the police will be prohibited from arresting anyone who doesn’t abide by the national regulations.
  • Start a legal fund to defend every single case of unlawful arrest in the Western Cape.

While this list is not exhaustive, it is a good start. The DA will be using the most scientifically accurate evidence to curb Covid 19 and protect their economy at the same time. It is what the residents want and the DA must represent the interests of their constituency.

Therefore, Alan Winde needs to put his lycra costume on and cycle outside of the designated hours, with a camera crew in tow. When the police arrest him for ‘violating the lockdown’, the ensuing media circus must be used to ram home the message: the lockdown is illegitimate and the Western Cape will not abide by it. This will cause a mass civil disobedience movement that will undermine the legitimacy of the lockdown.

Whether the Western Cape can legally do so is beyond the purview of this post. However, the ANC will have to prove that their regulations and lockdown models are sound and based on rationality. I am not sure that they can do so.

So, come on. Let’s get the DA and the Western Cape on board with cutting edge science and international Covid 19 standards. Let’s free the Western Cape from the clutches of the commie ANC. Let’s tell the ANC that their lockdown is illegitimate, irrational and harmful to millions of South Africans who did not vote for it. Let the DA be the party of that defeats the ANC at their own game.

Let freedom reign in the Western Cape. Let’s get Alan Winde arrested.

        I understand the sentiment. Heaven knows I agree as an unemployed person needing everything to open up in order for me to help provide for my family again. My biggest fear is that articles like this, and many similar articles, will just incite a mob mentality. The harsh reality is that we are a republic founded as a union not a federation. We have no “States Rights” as they do in America.

      Thank you. Why must the government and world spend so much money on research and drugs when one is already available, interpheron is what your body naturally produces and stops the virus from multiplying in your cells. Government focuses on the negative when there is a drug used successfully to treat it called alpha interferon, also recommended by Dr Judy Markovits.

      Interferon is currently being used in vulnerable and health care personnel as a preventative measure, as well as in patients with COVID-19 in the form of a nebulisation which is a quicker route to reach the lungs and acts in the early stages of the infection. So far Interferon has cured more than 1500 patients from the virus and has been used by the Chinese National Health Commission to combat respiratory diseases.

    • Avatar Brett Clifton on May 9, 2020 at 10:53 pm

      Totally! F… this corrupt, pocket filling, police state and inevitable dictatorship we’re faced with. They’re coat-ailing on the back of this virus to continue their crippling economic game where we’ll all have no choice but to turn to the government for assistance. Very convenient. The fact that Cyril agrees with the Chinese communistic way of leadership as opposed to our not so apparent democracy is a tale in its own.

      Screw the ANC who were quite frank in terms of their mission to make the WCP ungovernable. Whether the person that said it belongs to another party or not. Go manage your elected provinces… And let us manage ours!

    I fail to understand why people trying to keep fit should be demonized. I’ve ALWAYS cycled as a fitness EXERCISE. Fitness is a far better method of keeping a lung disease at bay than wearing a mask ! Running and cycling “without a mask” should be allowed at any time of the day or night in all public spaces, throughout the country !

    But do not underestimate the deviousness of the ANC.
    They will most likely arrest the camera crew for illegal gathering and Allan himself for pubic indecency with that lycra costume on.

  26. Avatar Andrew on May 9, 2020 at 7:26 pm

    Testing and results are important so to understand published studies on covid and understanding various testing techniques that can explain positive results but no symptoms. We all have viruses in your cells, but not enough to call it a disease or to harm all of us.
    The test is only a measure of a sequence of Rna not covid or exosomes. That sequence of Rna hasn’t been extracted from any purified particles. It came from a source where there are multiple sources of Rna from the human Cell,bacterial, fungal, free floating, exosomes and possibly viruses. You can misinterpret the results because it’s not a quantitative test. Just a few particles couldn’t be destructive enough because there is a dose response relationship and the test doesn’t tell you that. But since the virus has never been isolated and shown to be measured, this test of genetic material cannot be compared to a gold standard. So who knows what it is really measuring. You have nothing to compare it to. No proof of any virus that has been isolated that causes disease so its really a shot in the dark.
