And her being female is 11 years overdue^^^^ This
Anyone who thinks NDZ is smart, needs to remember that they can also stubbornly hold onto the dumbest ideas such as Virodene. Older people also become more rigid in their thinking, and their underlying biases can override common sense about damage to the economy. By definition politics attracts people with an excessive sense of self-confidence, and that is a very dangerous combination. There is a very good reason that most institutions have a mandatory retirement age of 65.
Of course these dumb ****s will try. They obviously don't believe in history repeating itself or they are just too thick to even care.Anyone still of the opinion that they are not going to try institute permanent prohibition, both will alcohol and tobacco? Show of hands?
Duarte is not in public office.So this has come to light that the petition raised brows under the ANC backing once again Dlamini-Zuma. Let me make this clear this is not just based on the current bylaws written against tobacco and alcohol, but us as a nation stripped of our voices to remain in a struggle orientated mindset...www.change.org
Oh man lol They rolled out Duarte. One of the lead enablers of state capture by the Zuma faction over the last decade. SA would be a hundred times better without captured toadies like her in public office.
And what is she ranting against the tobacco industry for? There's still a tobacco industry even now. Just the illegal kind that is in cahoots with NDZ who she praises.
F***ing ANC I tell you. Over them.
Technically sure.Duarte is not in public office.
Just Cele clinging to the illusion of control. This cigarette ban was a societal own goal. Everybody involved in it's institution and enforcement will now stretch logic as far as it can go to rationalise their actions. When all they did was misuse temporary power within the context of a pandemic to forward personal ambitions - Within context of said pandemic it is in my humble opinion a treasonous sin.Cigarettes should only be enjoyed in the privacy of your home and if you are found with one in your car, you will have a lot of explaining to do, including disclosing who sold it to you.www.iol.co.za
The EFF says that liquor sales, along with schools, should not reopen until more scientific data is available to ensure they will not lead to the spread of the coronavirus.
In a statement on Thursday, the party said there was "currently no creditable scientific data that illustrates that the easing of the lockdown regulations, even with precautionary measures such as wearing masks, washing hands and constantly using hands sanitisers will not lead to the increased spread of the [coronavirus]".
Stemming the spread of Covid-19 would only be further hampered by schools reopening and the lifting the ban on alcohol sales, the party believes.
"The intention to permit the sale of alcohol will only worsen the situation because, even where there is no effort to contain a pandemic, alcohol has been responsible for many health-related and social ills in society," EFF spokesperson Vuyani Pambo said.
