There are rumours that says President Cyril Ramaphosa will address the nation on the 15th of January and people should be prepared for the bad news when it comes to alcohol, tobacco and jobs. There are people who believes that our youth are uncontrollable when they are under influence of alcohol, but people are worried because there are people who rely on alcohol sales to put food on the table for their families. It is sad because some tavern owners don’t have any source of income when alcohol is banned and there are possibilities for this lockdown to continue.
Tobacco is one of the reasons why the number of people who test positive of this disease is increasing because you will find our youth smoking one cigarette in public places, and it is dangerous to exchange one cigarette in times like this.
Alcohol ban have a negative impact on our economy and jobs losses and there are possibilities for this ban to continue because people don’t listen and there are possibilities for this disease to spread even more if alcohol sales will be allowed on the 15th of January.
