Adjusted Level 2 lockdown rules for South Africa — what you can and can't do

The Minister of Cooperative Governance and Corporate Affairs, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma, has published updated regulations for South Africa’s adjusted alert level 2 lockdown in the Government Gazette.

In a separate notice, Dlamini-Zuma also extended South Africa’s National State of Disaster by another month — to 15 October 2021.

Not strange at all that at any adjusted level taxi operators are allowed to bundle 20 people into a cramped taxi.

That thing will extend that forever....its a control instrument...
SA went from a democracy to a dictatorship in one stroke of the pen. I'd imagine they're secretly pleased at the low vaccination levels as it gives them an excuse not to open up the country again and relinquish the absolute control they currently have over their subjects.

So long as windows are open... :laugh: What happened to those fancypants screens they were making for the taxis?

They probably do enjoy the control and enjoyed it even more earlier during the pandemic with those inane briefings they used to hold and scold us. But even with that they do know their lockdowns are causing more harm than good. The virus is unfortunately rather real and harmful. So, their power plays are somewhat justified and I don't think even you believe that about vaccines.

The alcohol thing makes zero sense, I can drink at the restaurant and drive home knackered, but I can't buy to drink at home. Brainless buffoons.
You can also stock up over the course of the previous five days, or buy at vendors not troubled by pesky regulations. It's about control.

What bottle stores are open until 22h00? And do you buy your alcohol to drink at home at restaurants?

Precisely. It makes no sense. Coming back from cape Town yesterday I went pass quite a few cars where the driver were either drunk, or brain dead. One old livina had the driver and passengers drinking beer straight from the bottle. Not a pig in sight.

Night club is actually a specific designation in the liquor licensing. Allows opening till 4am and no food sales required, most places apply under the bar/restaurant category as a night club license is a huge pain to get approved.

The only 2 I know of in PTA currently is Presleys and Weiveld, they're both still closed.
