TRANSPORTATION and distribution of liquor to licensed premises permitted from Friday 29 May.
That’s according to Defence Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula.
Mapisa-Nqakula said this is subject to directions by relevant ministers.
From Monday onwards liquor will be sold under lockdown level three regulations from Mondays to Thursdays from 9am-5pm.
However, government says onsite consumption of liquor is prohibited and e-commerce sales will be permitted subject to the same onsite trade days and time.
The sale of liquor on Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays is prohibited under level three of the lockdown regulations
Meanwhile, debate still rages on what led to the unbanning of churches gatherings and other congregations in the country, as we approach level 3, asks reporter Sello Nchwe?
From political parties to some influential figures they question the scientific study that led to such decision and what impact it would citing that most of the congregants will prove difficult to obey and adhere to regulations amongst others.
Surprisingly, one of the biggest churches in Africa Zion Christian Church through its founder Rev Barnabas Lekganyane does not support the move and insisted it will be closed.
