SAB challenges constitutionality of alcohol ban

Published on

SAB has issued a statement confirming that it has taken the legal route and challenged the constitutionality of the return of the alcohol ban in South Africa.

South African Breweries (SAB) took to Twitter on Wednesday, 6 January 2021, to circulate a statement confirming the legal route that it has taken against the state. This comes after President Cyril Ramaphosa announced a ban on alcohol when the country returned to Level 3 restrictions in December 2020.

In explaining the reason for challenging the government, SAB stated, “This legal action is the last resort available to SAB in order to protect our employees, suppliers, customers, consumers and all the livelihoods we support.”

Moreover, SAB explained that it had initially provided alternatives to the government in December 2020, which did not involve a complete ban. One such suggestion is one that SAB has continued to propagate, which is banning the public consumption of alcohol. This means that alcohol consumers should be permitted to only drink at home.
