Let's not forget the tax revenue this would have generated.

But no, we prefer to sell our futures to the IMF.

So much of stupid.

My comment was partially in jest but mostly based in the ANC reality.

They promised to reform the country and during this cooties outbreak they are trying to fast track the destruction of the industry and it seems they are actually delivering on this communist promise.

It is a sad state of reality but it is happening and we can only sit on the sidelines hoping it will not go all the way.

People still thinking that the smokes and booze will come back ...... the companies know better and are getting TFO. Never thought the being like all other failed african countries would come to sa as fast as it has lately. Anyone sitting without alarm bells of some kind going off are fools.

Or more correctly.. well done irresponsible drunkards. <-- you can argue all you want about the ANC doing the banning.. but this would not have happen if people learnt to be responsible and to that end ironically it comes full circle to consumer education. kinda why the if you ask the industry about this they go morbidly quiet.

Absolute horseshyte of the highest order...

This was going to happen regardless of how people use/abuse alcohol. You have fallen for their bullshyte propaganda.

LOL sure they can shutdown.. someone else will re-open as business picks up. if this period has proven anything then its that people cant live without drinking and smoking at their peril. sounds like a business case to me.

Really? so we didnt have a period where there was no ban, people abused, hospitals flooded and then a ban imposed as a result of it? There was no announcement that this may cause issues weeks before ban re-instated?

WOW.. I must have been watching news from some other dimension.. mean time SA people ignore rules and laws daily and then bitch when consequences come daily. Just park off near a residential road and watch.

Again, you have fallen for the propaganda.

Every time alcohol has been banned, there have been other limitations at play (like the Curfew). There is also zero concrete evidence that all the drop in trauma cases are alcohol abuse cases as they do not get tested for alcohol levels when they are in trauma wards.

You cannot attribute the drop in trauma cases etc solely to the lack of alcohol availability. If anything even though you cannot get it from a shop, the availability of alcohol is still as easy as it was when it wasn't banned, so you don't have a complete cessation of the use/abuse of alcohol.
