Williams explained that this was a regular sitting of the meeting.

“There was no other scheduled meeting other than this one, there was no cancelled one. It was the festive period, and this is the first one in 2021.”

She also said Ramaphosa addressing the nation would be announced by his office.

“The Presidency will issue a statement to that effect. At the moment, we can only confirm that the command council will be meeting tomorrow.”
