Government has paid 95 million rand for the deployment of more than two thousand soldiers to support the fight against Covid-19 from 29 December last year to the end of this month. This was confirmed in a letter by President Cyril Ramaphosa to Parliament's Joint Standing Committee on Defence. The soldiers were deployed mostly in the Western Cape after the President announced a return to Lockdown Level 3 following a surge in new infections in the country's second wave of the pandemic. The SANDF was also deployed in March, April and June last year. Committee chairperson Cyril Xaba says the soldiers have contributed greatly to the fight against Covid-19 by monitoring lockdown regulations.

The High court in Pretoria has struck off the court roll the application by the Government Employees Medical Scheme (GEMS) due to lack of urgency. Gems asked the court to stop the release of an interim report by the Section 59-Investigation into racial profiling of Doctors by medical aids. The report was set to be released Sunday. Gems brought the urgent application saying it was not within the powers of Section 59-Investigation to release the report. They also argued that releasing the report would cause them irreparable harm, be prejudicial to them and damage their reputation. Judge Colleen Collis however ruled the urgency was self created as neither Gems or any other body tried to prevent the publication of the findings earlier, when it was scheduled for release in December. Judge Collins struck the matter of the urgent roll and reserved costs.

[TAKE: SB
INCUE: They ought
OUTCUE: self created]

(TEXT: The ought to have taken this step earlier on. The could not have envisaged with earlier date being announce that these dates would have been post poned. And if they had any right to be protected such right existed earlier on already. The applicants before court took a passive stance. They folded their arms and waited for the eleventh hour, to approach the court. Consequently I am in agreement that the urgency of the application is entirely self created. )
