The deadly coronavirus has forced the closure of borders and the suspension of flights around the world. This means a lot of people are stuck outside their home countries.

South African comedian Tumi Morake is one of those who can not come back to South Africa due to the lockdown.

Tumi and her actor husband Mpho and their three children are stuck in Virginia in the United States of America and are unable to come back home until the 21 days shutdown ends.

Even though they are not home the good thing is that they are together as a family. They had not left anyone home alone.


Tumi said they were in USA to finish  some of their business, however that did not happen due to the outbreak of Covid-19.

The couple and their children had initially planned a mini holiday in USA since they have family and friends in that country.

Meanwhile the comedian commended President Cyril Ramaphosa for closing the border. She said the lockdown has helped her family to bond.
