“It’s currently been more than 70 days since lockdown, I haven’t gotten a reaction to my Covid-19 proposition. Might you be able to refresh us on what the hold up now is?” she asked.
Dear @ArtsCultureSA it’s now been over 70 days since lockdown, I haven’t gotten a response to my Covid proposal. Could you update us on what the holdup now is?

Maybe @NathiMthethwaSA will help. He’s more present on twitter than the ministerial account. We need answers and to not be ignored by our department. We haven’t made money most of this year. https://t.co/q0l5U4X3YB

Simphiwe is just one of a few specialists who have disclosed their complaints via web-based networking media, guaranteeing that despite the fact that they’ve presented all the fundamental documentation, the office had not returned to them.
A few, similar to on-screen character Nokuthula Mavuso, have composed open letters to the pastor of expressions and culture.
The on-screen character said she had trusted the reported R150m alleviation finance designated to support entertainers and craftsmen during the lockdown would support her.
“I was cheerful that the store would pad the #LockdownSA #COVID19SA blow. I sent through completely required docs by your dept, I’m yet to get an affirmation of receipt from your dept. It torments me that entertainers such as myself have been disregarded or dismissed without conceivable clarification,” she said.
In the interim, the office has given explanations and arrangements of the individuals who have just gotten installments.
Be that as it may, as the protests heap up on the priest’s TL, he’s turned to utilizing his DMs to catch up for the individuals who state they are yet to get any correspondence from his area of expertise.
Good day, if you applied for the Sport, Arts and Culture Relief Fund and you did not receive a response, please send me a DM with the email address you used to apply so we can follow up. We had several follow ups for a different grant in the previous Tweet. Thank you.
