Amidst the ongoing 21-day COVID-19 lockdown in the country of South Africa, the nation so as to relax the burden on social grant beneficiaries collecting their funds has decided to allow bus and taxi service to resume for this week.
South Africa is providing social grants to the elderly, children and people with disabilities in the coming week.
The move was announced by Transport Minister Fikile Mbalula on March 30 who said the transport service relaxation will be functional from March 31 to April 3. The time slots have been fixed from 5am until 8pm.
The Transport Ministry also advised the people to carry their identity cards and South African Social Security Agency cards while using the public transport so as to aid the police enforce the guidelines.
