Khanyi Mbau weighed in on the alcohol ban by South Africa Government as their means to flatten the COVID-19 curve!n Wednesday actress and businesswoman,
“Is it really serving the purpose of helping the numbers go down? Has there been a change ever since the 31st of December?
“… And I am not asking this out of arrogance. I am asking this because I’ve just found out/it’s been reported that 160 000 people have lost their jobs due to the ban and obviously alcohol companies not opening up until the president allows alcohol to be sold or trade again,” wrote Khanyi Mbau.
With the number of locals losing their jobs, Khanyi Mbau said that it merely means that hundred thousand families will not have food, will not have money, including not having money to pay for their children’s school fees for the upcoming school year.
“What does this honestly mean? I am not saying that alcohol isn’t’ the cause why we are sitting with the numbers that we’re sitting with… But let’s be honest it’s an industry that people’s livelihoods depend on,” said Khanyi Mbau.
Khanyi Mbau said that she wants the government to really look into this, including “maybe” we should have a regulated way of selling alcohol.
She said by stopping the sales of alcohol “we” are killing many families.
Around 2018 Khanyi Mbau launched I AM KHANYI Gin – Millennial Shimmer.

FYI: The flatter curve comes about when a nation of people practices the preventive and protective habits that curb the spread of illness. A lower, flatter curve means healthcare systems are likely not overwhelmed by people who acquire the illness at the same time.
