“Because I am a member of the security forces, my work is now amongst the people. You see all kinds of people on the streets, each with their own ideas and thoughts. And we need to get along with all of them. It is kind of difficult for us to change how we talk every 5 minutes. During the 48 hours of complete lockdown, I was in this street when a man drove in front of me, he had a child with him. I told him what are you doing here, don’t you know there is a lockdown? He immediately said to me, ‘do you have children?’ I found that strange and I said yes, two children. He pointed to the child and said, ‘he is very attached to his grandmother, it’s been more than 10 days he has been asking to see her. What would you do if you were in my situation?’ I said I would take him to see her. So, I told him it is okay, you can go.”
