Cyril Ramaphosa adjusts time to address SA due to Noxolo Grootboom



President Cyril Ramaphosa will address the nation on developments regarding the country’s response to the Covid-19 pandemic at 7.30pm on Tuesday.

At first, the President stated the family meeting will hold by 7pm but many had to come out to call on him to change the timing as it is the same with the last news bulletin Noxolo Grootboom will be reading.

Today is the last day for Noxolo as she will be retiring after 37 years in the industry.

Cyril thereby addressed the nation saying: “The address was originally scheduled for 7pm but it was pushed forward by 30 minutes “to allow SABC viewers to watch veteran newsreader Noxolo Grootboom’s final bulletin as she retires after 37 years”, the presidency said.

Presidency acting spokesperson Tyrone Seale said the address follows meetings in recent days of the national coronavirus command council, the president’s co-ordinating council and the cabinet.
