"Queen Sono" star Pearl Thusi shared her thoughts regarding being in a privileged position during the 21-day lockdown over the weekend. 

Following President Cyril Ramaphosa announcement on the 21-day lockdown last week Monday, South Africans have gone into a frenzy with regards to the rules, shopping for food and social distancing during this period.

Taking to her Twitter page, Thusi shared how the lockdown has made her evaluate and appreciate the privilege she enjoys. She also said that she refuses to be judgmental of those who are less fortunate during this time.


This comes after many news reports of working-class South Africans struggling to buy groceries after the lockdown started with regards to transport and social distancing. While those who had the means already started stockpiling and panic buying weeks ago. 

Fans of the former "Quantico" star also shared their thoughts regarding how the lockdown is going.

Profound, very true. This should be a wake up call for government to vastly improve the lives of our people...

No disrespect or anything sisi kodwa.. I think this should be an eye opener for you black privileged people. I think your money combined can try eliminate some of the issues we face and y'all can still make something out of it. Collaboration as Black's imptnt.
