[WATCH] What lockdown? Videos show disregard for regulations at Joburg hangout
Some Twitter users have rebuked the behaviour displayed in the videos taken at the popular Jozi market on Sunday.
The footage shows several people drinking alcohol and socialising without any masks or physical distancing.
On Sunday, the Health Ministry recorded 8,000 new Covid-19 infections bringing the total number of Covid-19 cases in South Africa to 511, 485.
A total of 8,366 people have died and 347,227 have recovered since the country's outbreak in March.
While some tweeps have admonished the party-goers at Kwa Mai Mai, others have come to their defence.
Here's what some Twitter users have to say:

Someone who's selfish is you who thinks people should enjoy their freedom taken away. I like what I'm seeing people being out reclaiming their freedom. For a piece of information virus doesn't obey any laws 🙄— Goldstein (@Goldste14280985) August 2, 2020

Situations like this Led to What's Happening Kwa Mai Mai, If we Find Our Leaders Breaking the Regulations And Defending it instead of Living up to their Mistakes what makes us Think People will Adhere to the Regulations?
