"DON’T BE" VIDEOS
KEEP OPENING WINDOWS
Eish, travelling by taxi during a pandemic is not fun. Especially when some people don’t wear their masks properly and when a Moemish doesn’t want to keep the windows open to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. But watch how moghel schools a Moemish nicely.
KEEP SOCIAL DISTANCING
You know that moment when your team is losing and suddenly, they come from behind and snatch a victory. What a feeling! But right there, a Moegoe comes in for a high five. That’s not cool, especially during a pandemic. Watch and learn how to Bluetooth high five and and maintain safe social distancing.
KEEP WEARING A MASK
They say ‘you’re never too old to learn’. In a pandemic, the opposite is also true. One of the best precautions you can take to reduce the risk of infection is to wear a mask. Watch how uGogo turns the tables on Mabena here.

"HOW NOT TO" TUTORIALS
HOW NOT TO BE A MOEGOE
- Keep social distancing
Social distancing means keeping a safe space between yourself and other people who are not from your household. To practice social distancing, stay at least 1.5m (about 2 arms’ length) from other people who are not from your household in both indoor and outdoor spaces. That means no handshakes, hugs, kisses from auntie or high fives.
HOW TO NOT BE A MAMPARA
- Keep avoiding large indoor gatherings
It is best to avoid large indoor gatherings where it may be difficult to social distance. If you’re in a crowded space, try to keep 1.5m between yourself and others and wear a mask. Pay attention to tape markings on floors or signs on walls. Allow other people 1.5m of space when you pass by them.
HOW TO NOT BE MOEMISH
- Keep opening windows
Be wise this festive season. Don’t be a moemish. Always wear your mask over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin. Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face. And when you’re in a taxi or vehicle, please make sure there’s enough ventilation, by asking the driver and other passengers to open the windows. Also, don’t forget to wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds when you arrive at your destination.
HOW TO NOT BE A CHOP
- Keep wearing a mask properly
For maximum protection wear your mask correctly. First, wash your hands, then put it over your nose and mouth and secure it under your chin. Try to fit it snugly against the sides of your face but make sure you can still breathe easily. Don’t be a chop and wear it under your nose or chin.
