South Africans are not happy with Cooperative Governance Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma who is believed to be calling for the alcohol and cigarette ban to continue.
News24 says they have been reliably informed that Dlamini-Zuma has told the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC) this week that the sale of tobacco and alcohol should continue to be banned until the country reaches Level 1 of the lockdown.
News24’s source went on to say that no decision had yet been taken,
“The discussion goes on and on and there is no finality,” the insider said.

I think it’s time for Cyril to reshuffle the Cabinet… We replace Nkosazana Clarice Dlamini-Zuma with Gwede ”TIGER” Mantashe

It’s funny to me that when Ramaphosa appointed #dlaminizuma as COGTA minister, he never anticipated that we gonna reach a state of emergency due to the coronavirus. He probably thought “Lemme give her a useless department” I bet he now regrets her appointment. pic.twitter.com/pwn0xs4OxF
