“For now, I don’t think they can have any reasonable explanation for continuing with that wedding. We will be interviewing each one individually.

“The charges will be put to them, they have definitely contravened the regulations of the Disaster Management Act.

“The prosecutor will guide us on exactly which charges will be preferred against them. I don’t think we can be expecting any explanation from them at this point in time unless we have spoken to the senior prosecutor.”

It is expected that those arrested for violating the lockdown order will be arraigned in court today, April 6.

The South African government had announced a 21-day total lockdown over Coronavirus, which began from midnight on March 26, 2020. President Cyril Ramaphosa says it is necessary to “avoid a human catastrophe” and he instructed the army to enforce the restrictions.
