Is Alcohol Ban again in South Africa this July

Sale, dispensing & distribution of alcohol has been suspended with immediate effect in South Africa.

This is coming  after the South African president Cyril Ramaphosa was addressing the nation during a national live broadcast on Sunday night.

“The sale, dispensing and distribution of alcohol will be suspended with immediate effect.”

This is according to President Cyril Ramaphosa during a national address on Sunday night.

The president disclosed that this was to make sure that hospital beds were not taken up “by those who come in resulting from alcohol-induced trauma or injuries”.

“There is now clear evidence that the resumption of alcohol sales has resulted in substantial pressure being put on hospitals, including trauma and ICU units, due to motor vehicle accidents, violence as well as trauma that is alcohol-induced,” said Ramaphosa.
