"We had to adhere to the call. The more ignorance we choose, the more the virus spreads," Moya tells KickOff.com.

"We are also taking all the safety measures in ensuring our safety by making use of masks, gloves, sanitisers and the washing of hands.

"We hope that by having these personalities involved we will encourage those who look up to them to adhere to all the rules put in place. Together we will beat this pandemic."

The South African Police Service and National Defence Force will join the proceedings in Johannesburg on Tuesday.

"Yes, we are joining both the SANDF and SAPS in patrol in a bid to bring hope and encourage the community to use all the necessary safety measures to help curb the spread of the coronavirus," September confirms.

"Some of the community lack basic information because they don't have electricity to watch TV and other media platforms where most of the information is delivered.

"So this will be an opportunity to spread the message about the call made by the government to adhere to all safety measures."
