PROMINENT comedian, Trevor Noah has heavily slammed western countries for imposing travel bans on Southern African countries.
In a video widely circulating on social media, Trevor Noah said the decision by the leaders of Western countries is not fair at all.
“The decision by the Western Leaders to impose travel ban on African countries is bull sh**t. The new covid-19 variant has been discovered in dozens of countries worldwide but the Leaders ban African countries which have not recorded cases of the variant,” he said.
“We don’t know when the variant started and we don’t even know how long it has been around. Why aren’t you banning countries like Israel, Hong Kong, Austria, Portugal among others,” he added.
The variant has been found in the following countries: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Botswana, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Hong Kong ,Israel, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Portugal, South Africa l, Spain, Switzerland and the United Kingdom.
However, European countries have imposed travel sanctions on African countries which includes Angola, Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
