Tavern owners give Ramaphosa ultimatum over alcohol sales ban

A representative body for tavern owners has given President Cyril Ramphosa a week to respond to its request for relief during the alcohol sales ban, saying it will otherwise resort to its own means to survive the economic impact of Covid-19.

The National Liquor Traders Council (NLTC), which represents more than 34 000 tavern owners, is one of many alcohol industry groups that has been up in arms about government reinstating its ban on the sale of alcohol this week.

The ban was briefly lifted at the beginning of June.
