Covid in the Kasi – Thoughts from Our Audience

COVID IN THE KASI – LOCKDOWN DAY 97

We don’t mean to toot our own horn but it’s always great to get feedback on the content we’re sharing. Sloot FM presenter, Gerald Ngobeni, motivational speakers, Ntokozo Radebe and Mpho Mamabolo, and artist, Patrick Simelane have been following the Covid in the Kasi campaign and are early birds to all our posts. They have been kind enough to tell us what they think of the campaign and what content they’d like to see.

“We no longer have to search too far for news about what is happening in the community. Covid in the Kasi keeps young people, who are constantly on social media, in the know about what’s going on and those who are making a difference in our community”, says Gerald. “I would like to see content that helps the youth find employment and young people grow their companies.”

“A lot of people have been getting updates on our radio station but we are humbled to see people still managing to access to stories about their township, considering the circumstances”, he adds. “I would love to see this campaign continue even after Covid-19”

Patrick would like to see more local artists featured. “Who knows, maybe one of your posts about artists could be seen by famous artists who are willing to assist”, he says. “This campaign deserves worldwide recognition. It is rare to see people going to so much trouble in precarious times like these to keep their community updated.”

It is wonderful to hear that people are finding our content useful. We will continue to strive to keep the Diepsloot community informed and to tell your stories. Keep the feedback coming! we’d love to hear from more of you.
