Bad news for alcohol consumers

Cape Town – The UKZN Acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Research and Innovation, Professor Mosa Moshabela, says it is untrustworthy for the alcohol business to expect the public authority not to put limitations on liquor over the Easter occasions. 


Alcohol industry partners have cautioned that an out and out boycott would not be practical for the area. It is assessed that the last three liquor boycotts prompted a misfortune in deals income of R36.3 billion for the liquor business. 


Alcohol Traders Formation convener Lucky Ntimane said another prohibition on liquor would mean the finish of the bar area as far as we might be concerned. 


It's been accounted for that proposals have been made to the National Coronavirus Command Council to limit liquor deals, as fears of a third flood of Covid-19 diseases increment. 


Moshabela says there shouldn't be a discussion on if there ought to be limitations and rather asks the business players to take a gander at how they can uphold the public authority and guarantee that individuals are protected. 


"It is untrustworthy for the business to expect the public authority not to put limitations on liquor, we know this and they know this. Guaranteeing that individuals are protected is the thing that is significant. 


''They ought to be seeing what estimates they could set up to help government. On the off chance that they are not doing that, they are being reckless," he said. 


Then, writing in his week after week open letter to the general population, President Cyril Ramaphosa said that the public authority is at present thinking on these and different issues, and will make a declaration in the coming days. 


"We are presently at a time where precaution is required most importantly. The Covid pandemic has not been disposed of, either in our own country or all throughout the planet. The danger of a third wave is genuine and at any point present," the president said.
