Responding to President Masisi ‘s National Address this week Leader of Opposition Dumelang Saleshando said there is need for the President to reach out to all stake holders and consult on coming up with a workable plan to avoid the route to increasing Covid deaths.
Saleshando who is also Member of Parliament for Maun West quashed Masisi’s address saying it “confirmed that there is no plan in place to fight COVID-19”.
“The President needs to appreciate that the nation is in a pensive and uneasy mood. Relatives are queuing up to collect lifeless bodies from mortuaries, others are in ques for admission to non-available hospital beds.”
Saleshando proposed “We need to come together as a nation to protect ourselves against a common enemy”.
He said there was need for the nation to be reassured that politicians from across the political divide, trade unionists, the business community, community-based organizations as well as the clergy are holding hands to save the nation.
“When the nation comes together to pray, it should not be praying for a miracle, but for the success of a plan that has benefitted from the wisdom of all the leaders”
