The leader of Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF), Julius Malema has suspended dating for all unmarried South Africans.

He said South Africans must not allow any visitors into their homes including their boyfriends and girlfriends.

Malema said the reason is you won’t know where your girlfriend or boyfriend has been therefore everyone must stay in their respective homes until after Coronavirus.

He said only the married ones like him are safe because they know about the whereabouts of their partners.

Malema said this as an encouragement for people to practice social distancing. South Africa is the most affected country by Covid-19 in the African continent.
