This didn’t sit well with many of us because we will all assume that hospitals have copy generators, right? Well consistent with Zakes Bantwini these four people that sadly lost their lives, died thanks to their ventilators not working due to load shedding. He further said he worries about the various people who may need to be passed on thanks to load shedding.

“I know a minimum of 4 people that passed today, their ventilation stopped working due to load shedding. I’m wondering what percentage of people lost their loved ones today due to load shedding, can we a minimum of effect one pandemic at a time please.”

Flooding his comments section were people that were in disbelief at what proportion an individual of his caliber could potentially mislead people.

@TboozeSA said, “Uyaxoka, Suxoka (you’re lying, stop lying) … hospitals have a backup generator and cargo shedding level 2 doesn’t impact hospitals.”

@gino_gavaza said, “U just plan to LIE unprovoked. Hospitals have backup generators. of these 4 people u know happened to be in ventilators????”

@kgomo389 commented, “I wished you mentioned the names of those hospitals which do not have a backup generator. Ave uzekubopha uZweli Mkhize (Zweli Mkhize goes to arrest you.)

@Master_Sandz said. “Hospitals have copy generators that kick-in as soon because the power pops. & I’m talking like split-seconds such as if u inside the hospital u won’t even notice that there was an influence trip. So @ZakesBantwiniSA get ur facts right before misleading the state .”

Many tried to defend him by saying it might be possible that these people used the ventilators reception, “I think he’s pertaining to the ventilators within the parking zone. Remember COVID patients use the temporary beds and ventilators at the parking zone while they struggle and organize a bed within the hospital. I’m talking from experience during a Netcare hospital. So he might not be lying.”

Zakes defended himself by saying, “I accept that our realities are different, often times when ppl don’t understand/relate to something, they’re going to label it as lies/absurd. Nowhere did I mention the word hospital as that perhaps be ur assumption/reality? Abantu bay fa Bantu bakithi,asiyeke umdonsiswano Leongatha shu (people are dying, let us stop dragging one another .)
