Alcohol ban eases the burden on hospitals – Bheki Cele

Police Minister Bheki Cele says banning alcohol sales has allowed hospitals to priorities other important emergencies.

Cele was speaking on Wednesday during the South African Police Service’s briefing on its management of the National State of Disaster during the lockdown.

There are no people that are suffering from serious injuries out of the abuse of alcohol, like people that are shot, stabbed, and people who get injured during car crashes.

So that non-availability of alcohol has opened hospitals to do exactly what they are supposed to do”, said Cele. Meanwhile, Cele has set the record straight saying he has not apologized for the arrests made at a Mpumalanga mosque last week. He says those who were arrested had broken the law.

The SAPS has also indicated that it will act against a police officer who made blasphemous remarks during that incident. Coronavirus Hotline Number: 0800 029 999 from 8 am to 4 pm, Monday to Friday
