This has on another level raised lots of concerns among social media users on the basis that, the president and his vice who were supposed to be championing the Covid-19 safety measures course rather painted a picture to look like they are not affected by the rules they set as they were seen among attendants exceeding the 25 maximum gathering who were not necessarily observing the protocols.
