Connect With The World: 947 Breakfast Club chat to Wonder Mthehthwa in Nigeria
88 days ago
Every morning Anele and the 947 Breakfast will connect and share stories with people from around the world who are also in lockdown.
South Africa is on a 21 day lockdown, but so are many other countries around the world. Not only will we be checking in on our locals from Joburg, we would like to chat to our South African friends and family from around the world.
If you have a friend, family member or loved one who is currently somewhere outside of South Africa, send their details to our WhatsApp line 084 00 00 947, and we will try to have them on the show to check how they are keeping up...
The team chatted to Wonder Mthehthwa in Nigeria. He is a GM Operations for Pioneer foods Nigeria. He lives Lagos. and he’s been there since 2016.
How are things currently in Nigeria?
How is COVID19 affecting the people there?
Are we getting the full story here back home?
What is your biggest fear?
Who are you missing the most?
The pressing question they had for Lungisani Mthethwa, who is currently working at Pioneer Foods in Nigeria is, the party lifestyle we know of Nigeria, has that been put on hold in this time of the COVID19?
It was day 4 of lockdown in Nigeria, and everything has had to be on hold.
Were they given an option to come home? He says things happened so quickly, borders were closed, flights were cancelled. So no, there was never that option, but to be one of the people making sure hundreds of millions of people get bread gives him a purpose.
In a country of over 200 million citizens, Lungisani says the spirit of the Nigerians at the moment is to comply.
They are on a WhatsApp group of South Africans in Nigeria and that is how they stay in touch with what happens at home.
And that is something South Africans should also do... COMPLY... Stay at home!
