‘Forcing parents to send their kids to a possible infection is unconscionable’ – Simphiwe Dana
Songstress Simphiwe Dana has said something regarding the continuous discussion about whether the reviving of schools during the Covid-19 overall pandemic is a smart thought.
The songstress shared her conclusions on Twitter, saying schools being revived and anticipating that guardians should send their children to a potential disease was “unconscionable”.
“Reviving schools and houses of worship in a profoundly infectious, quick acting and airborne infection. I wouldn’t fret what grown-ups do as nobody is compelling them however driving guardians to send their children to a potential disease is unconscionable.”
In spite of the fact that sending their youngsters to class was not mandatory, Simphiwe approached what that implied for kids who didn’t go to classes.
“Do they relinquish a school year while different children don’t?” read some portion of her tweet.

Reopening schools and churches in the middle of a highly contagious, fast acting and airborne virus. I don’t mind what adults do as no one is forcing them. But Forcing parents to send their kids to a possible infection is unconscionable #COVID19SouthAfrica

While many artists, actors and creatives have revealed their struggles to put food on the table, earlier this month Simphiwe revealed she was ‘“okay for another month” after she got her royalty payments.
The singer was frank about her struggle to earn an income during the lockdown and took to Twitter to share her relief at getting a royalties payment from the Southern African Music Rights Organisation (Samro).
Though she was delighted to get her money, she questioned why actors did not have a similar system of royalties.
“I just received funds from Samro. I’ll be okay for another month. Bears the question why actors don’t have royalties like we do?”
