Several fake messages on social media, especially on WhatsApp, announced the re-banning of alcohol, supposedly from today, despite denials from the Presidency.

“There is no need for panic buying,” said Phumla Williams, Director-General of Government Communication and Information Systems.

Eastern Cape Premier Oscar Mabuyane is lobbying national government to reimpose the alcohol ban in that province.

Refilwe Moloto asked Premier Winde about the rumours that alcohol sales may soon be prohibited again.
