SA May Introduce Night-Time and Booze Curfew

President Cyril Ramaphosa is likely tonight to reintroduce night-time curfew, tighten regulations on the sale of alcohol, limit movement between provinces and enforce a limited load in minibus taxis and other modes of public transport.

Presidential spokesperson Khusela Diko told the Sunday Times that the president will address the nation tonight, but would not say what he is likely to announce.

The Sunday Times understands that the cabinet has sought legal opinion on the best way forward on the request to reintroduce a limit on the movement of people at night, which was fiercely challenged by the DA.

There is also now a request for the sale of alcohol to be regulated further, including a reduction in the hours of sale and the quantities people may purchase.

Banning or strictly limiting the movement of people between provinces, and ensuring that taxis comply with the requirement to load only up to 70% of their capacity, are some of the issues to be addressed today.
