“The National Development Implementation and Communication Cabinet Committee (NDICC) in its meeting of 24th, 2020 directed the State Department for Devolution to develop plans for food distribution for possible 21 days lockdown,” the fake letter reads.

“The purpose of this letter is to ask you to identify food stores in all Sub locations in your region in readiness for the proposed food distribution,”the letter further stated

This conceived a panic among the members of the public especially those who did not have enough food stocks in their stores.

KDRTV understands that several countries in Africa including South Africa have imposed a total lockdown on their citizens.
