Alcohol ban not enough to discourage socialising

By Rapule Moiloa

Alcohol may be banned and people not allowed to buy but this does not affect everyone. It was announced that alcohol will be banned with immediate effect as of Sunday the 13th of July 2020. For many people, this announcement was just blowing hot air because the announcement is not for everyone though it is supposed to apply to all people. Regardless of liquor stores closed people still find their way of getting alcohol and socialize. Alcohol ban is meant to flatten the curve of the spread of the coronavirus. Someone said that no matter how strict are the rules and regulations it does not matter because people will always make a plan to get alcohol and meet whenever they want. Even if taverns are closed there will always be a way either to make home brewed beer, punch etc. Alcohol is not the only thing that brings people together, street gambling like playing dice also contribute for people coming together.
