The video of a self-proclaimed prophet is circulating on social media where the man is heard saying the lockdown won’t help to curb the spread of the coronavirus. He’s also heard saying the authorities, including the President, don’t believe in prayer.

The suspect was arrested after people raised complaints with the police and the Health Department.

Health MEC, Phophi Ramathuba has welcomed the arrest. She says the arrest of a self-proclaimed prophet will serve as a deterrent to people who might think of spreading fake news.

Ramathuba says the department will not tolerate anyone spreading fake news and hurling insults at President especially when the country is battling against the spread of COVID-19. She is calling on members of the public to observe the rules and regulations of the lockdown.

This week, a 55-year-old man from Parow appeared briefly in the Cape Town Magistrate’s Court for claiming on social media, that testing swabs for COVID-19 are contaminated.

He faces charges under the Disaster Management Regulations. The video has been shared on a number of social media platforms.
