During his period of absence, the Deputy President will undertake a visit to the Russian Federation for a scheduled medical consultation. As reported this consultation is a follow-up to a previous medical consultation that the Deputy President received from the Russian Federation.
Meanwhile, President Cyril Ramaphosa will address the nation on Sunday, June 27, at 8 pm. This comes after the President met with the National Coronavirus Command Council in a special briefing on Saturday, June 26.
However, as always social media has shown us the funnier side of things.
Lmao why Russia? We have doctors here

“Why is this so last minute”?? Last minute for who? Are you kidding me right now? The communique literally reads ‘scheduled medical visit’. Which one were you reading???🙄
