African National Congress Women’s League wants alcohol ban back
The African National Congress Women’s League (ANCWL) said it would make calls for the alcohol ban to be reinstated under level 3 of the lockdown and that it would launch an anti-racism campaign on Friday night. The league has met to discuss issues, including the state of women under the COVID-19 lockdown, police brutality, the reopening of schools, and racism.
It said that it stood in solidarity with Collins Khosa’s family and the Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (Cogta), Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma. The ANCWL secretary-general Meokgo Matuba said what looked like individuals who had launched attacks on Dlamini-Zuma actually had the backing of the tobacco industry.
“There has been a concerted effort by the captains of industries affected by the tobacco ban to paint Dr Dlamini-Zuma as the enemy to citizens of South Africa.”Matuba read a statement from the women’s league, which called for the return of the alcohol ban.
