Fourth wave: Liquor traders plead with authorities not to act rashly

Johannesburg – Liquor traders are pleading with the government not to act hastily in dealing with the fourth Covid-19 wave.

They fear the imposition of further alcohol bans will hurt players in the sector.

The National Liquor Traders’ Council said it’s willing to work with government to fight the pandemic.

It said the state must keep to its promise and follow the science.

The traders are also calling on President Cyril Ramaphosa to talk about fighting the virus while saving jobs.

The sector was hit hard by the continuous alcohol bans as the country tried to curb the spread of the virus.
