In a recent post on the government’s official Twitter account, it revealed that the ban on the sale of alcohol and cigarette would continue throughout the lockdown period.
The government claims that this decision is for the benefit of her citizens in order to promote good health and save lives.
However, this conclusion has baffled the public and social media users. They find it difficult to believe this new policy because, no one knows when the lockdown will be over.
In fact, the chairperson for the Fair-Trade Independent Tobacco Association – Sinenhlanhla Mnguni – has vented his anger at the tweet. He’s been left astonished and wants to know why such a decision was taken and announced after communicating that the ban will be lifted soon.
“Just the other week Cyril Ramaphosa said it was only a matter of time before the cigarette ban was lifted. So what led to this sudden change in position, if this communication below is accurate that the ban will remain in effect throughout the lockdown period?” he questioned.
Some are still expecting a valid response from the government.
