It is like we are just pushing this topic aside I think it should be addressed.
Why will a woman or man just open up along the road or street and start urinating. It's really disgusting.
Yesterday, while I was on the road. A matured lady who should be in her forties ran pass me. Thinking something was happening at front I turned back to run but Instead I saw this lady urinating in the nearby gutter. I turned immediately and continued walking. How did she do that? She didn't even felt shame. Why not hold it, or look for a near bush.
I think the government should also look into this. Anyone caught in action should be arrested , maybe this will serve as a lesson.
â€œThings are getting back to normal, even though it will never be like it was before,â€ says a relieved Petunia Maseko, relaxing in a bar in South Africaâ€™s Soweto township.
Africa has weathered the coronavirus pandemic relatively well in terms of infections and deaths, though its economies have been badly ravaged.
While many nations ease their COVID-19 measures and citizens dare to breathe a little easier, experts are warning against letting the continentâ€™s success lapse into complacency.
There was plenty of celebrating at The Black and White Lifestyle Pub in Soweto on Friday as the first weekend of spring coincided with South Africaâ€™s transition to its lowest level of lockdown.
The continentâ€™s hardest-hit nation, South Africa has reeled under one of the worldâ€™s strictest lockdowns.
â€œIt was tough staying in for six months without socialising,â€ said Maseko, a 21-year-old engineering student wearing a brightly coloured Ndebele traditional outfit.
But virus measures were followed, with masked revellers getting their temperatures checked at the barâ€™s entrance.
Sanitising gel in hand, 26-year-old DJ Tiisetso Tenyane was delighted to finally play in front of a live audience after months of live-streaming shows.
â€œIâ€™ve been craving to play for the people again,â€ he said.
He said that face masks are â€œthe only sign left that there ever was a pandemicâ€.
On the rest of the African continent, daily life varies vastly between strict observance of health measures and total relaxation.
â€“ â€˜Back to our habitsâ€™ â€“
â€œWe donâ€™t care about corona,â€ Ivory Coastâ€™s President Alassane Ouattara said, oblivious to listening microphones, when he kissed a party official last month in front of thousands of people in clear defiance of virus restrictions.
Although masks are still compulsory, that rule is â€œnot respected anywhere or almost anywhereâ€ in Ivory Coast, a health worker said on condition of anonymity.
â€œThe hysteria is gone and the state no longer communicates much about the subjectâ€.
In DR Congoâ€™s capital Kinshasa, taking temperatures and washing hands are still the norm in the residential district of Gombe, which is also the cityâ€™s diplomatic and economic centre.
But in working-class communities, masks are being pushed down to the chin and people are shaking hands again.
For many the latest buzz phrase is â€œcorona eza teâ€, which translates to â€œthere is no coronaâ€ in the local Lingala.
In West Africanâ€™s Burkina Faso, 43-year-old fish seller Ousmane Ouedraogo said he canâ€™t wear a mask forever.
â€œWe tried to wear it every day but it was the authorities who set the example by acting as if the disease was over. So weâ€™re going back to our habits,â€ he said.
Nobody uses the hand-washing station at the entrance to Guillaume Traoreâ€™s restaurant in Burkinaâ€™s capital Ouagadougou.
â€œWhen you remind a customer, he tells you that the coronavirus does not exist,â€ he said.
In Chad and Gabon, many wear masks low down, covering only the mouth or just the chin, only to hastily lift them up when they come across the police.
In churches, mosques and markets, people jostle into each other. In the evening, however, a strict curfew remains in place.
â€“ â€˜Be very carefulâ€™ â€“
In the megacity Lagos of Africaâ€™s most populous country Nigeria, civil servant Isiaka Okesanya said he now regularly forgets to wear his mask.
â€œItâ€™s like God has helped us to get rid of the disease. We no longer read about those big figures of deaths,â€ the 41-year-old told AFP.
But Emmanuel Akinyemi, director of Lagos-based Estate Clinic, said that â€œcoronavirus is real and is still very much around usâ€.
Health Minister Osagie Ehanire said last week that while Nigeriaâ€™s daily infection figures have been trending downwards, â€œwe, unfortunately, cannot afford to rejoice or speak of successâ€.
The World Health Organizationâ€™s Africa regional director Matshidiso Moeti said the continent has been spared â€œan exponential spread of Covid-19 as many initially fearedâ€.
However, John Nkengasong, director of Africa Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, warned that â€œwe also have to be very careful that we do not over-project any successesâ€.
In West Africaâ€™s Senegal, life has almost returned to normal since June.
This is in stark contrast to Rwanda, where one of the strictest lockdowns is still in place and police make arrests for â€œnot wearing masks properlyâ€.
In northern Africa, Morocco remains in lockdown, especially economic capital Casablanca, where large neighbourhoods are tightly sealed off.
Eastern Africaâ€™s Kenya is meanwhile reopening its bars and allowing restaurants to sell alcohol again as infections drop.
â€œWe are the most vulnerable and fragile at the moment where we think we have won,â€ President Uhuru Kenyatta said on Monday.
â€œIf we have won one battle against Covid-19, we have not yet won the war.â€
