Khanyi Mbau does her best to help employees find a better life away from alcohol
TV personality and businesswoman Khanyi Mbau has involved government to think about another strategy to assist support the liquor industry during the ban on the sale of alcohol.
Last week, President Cyril Ramaphosa announced the country would move to level 3 of the lockdown because the number of Covid-19 cases still soar. The ban on alcohol sales is in an effort to assist ease the burden on hospitals and reduce trauma cases associated with reckless alcohol consumption.
The reality television star took to Twitter to question the government’s decision to impose the ban again without reconsidering people within the alcohol industry.
She also urged the government to place measures in situ for the alcohol industry to survive during the pandemic.
Khanyi, proud owner of a gin called I’m Khanyi, shared a video during which she criticized the rationale for there being no reported trauma cases at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital on New Year’s Day Eve.
“Was it because enforcement was out, there was a strict curfew and there have been no parties allowed because I doubt when the president banned alcohol sales it made alcohol disappear?
“People had alcohol in their homes. the rationale why I’m raising this is often because it’s January, schools are close to open and there are families and other people who add the liquor industry who cannot return to figure, earn a living and support their families and confirm their children return to high school,” she said.
Khanyi said she didn’t skills she would help her workers who provide for their families.
“I am within the alcohol industry. I even have a gin. What happens to my staff? What do I do to assist them to live their lives and have a far better 2021 that was better than 2020?”
