The president of South Africa has put the country back to level 1, after a thorough assessment of whether this is legal or not. Ramaphosa and the National CoronaVirus Committee noted the sudden drop in the cases of Covid-19 across the country. Hence, it was essential to put the country to a much lower level, to allow the activities in the country to continue. People want jobs, and they cannot stay hungry for a very long time. This pandemic has resulted in massive job losses, and people are desperate, since poverty hits hard. There are allegations that the country was taken back to level 1, for the sake of the national local elections to take place effectively. After the elections, there is a high chance that the country would be entering the 4th wave of Covid-19 and severe restrictions needs to be taken.
When the country advanced to level 1 lockdown, people anticipated many fields to be opened, and an increase in the hours on the sales of the alcohol. People are now free to buy alcohol and drink it at any place. However, the Cape Argus newspaper has released some information regarding the sales of alcohol. This information affects everyone who drinks alcohol, and it is pivotal that they know this, before they can violate the rules and lead to incarceration.
In this article written on the 19th of October, it is stating that the sales of alcohol at garages is strictly prohibited. People should not buy alcohol at garage sites, or they can be deemed committing unlawful acts, which can cause them to be arrested. There are plenty of alcohol consumers in South Africa, and it will be difficult for this rule to come into action or be followed. Let people do the right thing and avoid arrests.
