MEC for Sport, Arts and Culture in Limpopo Thandi Moraka is in self-isolation after taking a test for Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The MEC has been exposed to the virus after her and the provincial MEC of Basic Education Pollie Boshielo were in contact with Netball South Africa president Cecilia Molokwane who tested positive for the virus.
