Cogta Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has confirmed that the transportation of alcohol will be prohibited over the long weekend.

UPDATE: Dlamini-Zuma is wrong about booze transportation ban, claims liquor law attorney

On Thursday morning, Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma briefed the media on the adjustments made to lockdown level 1 for the Easter long weekend.

Dlamini-Zuma told reporters the following;

Over the weekend they will not be allowed to carry [alcohol]. The police will be doing roadblocks and stuff. You're not allowed to carrying alcohol from one place to the other. Today, yes, you can buy it, you can take it to wherever but as from midnight today until midnight on Monday, they are not allowed [to do that].

Earlier this week, the government announced some alcohol restrictions ahead of the Easter weekend in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

Off-site alcohol sales are not allowed from Friday until next Tuesday.

However, alcohol can be sold on-site in licensed premises

Alcohol will only be sold on-site in licensed premises, explains Eyewitness News reporter Theto Mahlakoana.

Another clarification given by the minister is that people will not be able to transport alcohol during this long weekend period when these regulations will be enforced.
