If my research is correct, the ANC, by banning alcohol, is allowing South Africans to sober up and face reality.

What is it that upsets South Africans the most during lockdown? Covid-19? Yes, to a greater or lesser degree the threat of death through the dreaded bug is a worry. But if media headlines and my research are anything to go by, the absence of liquor causes a collective outcry. You can hear the screams of outrage in the homes, on the streets, in the offices and factories. “The president needs his head read.” “Cyril is again under the petticoat of NDZ.” Editorials, too, slam the government for its ineptitude and insensitivity towards the citizenry. Does it not realise that alcohol is part of the South African DNA and without it makes for an unhappy and disgruntled society.
