Eastern Cape Liquor Board welcomes the lifting of the alcohol ban

Eastern Cape Liquor Board (ECLB) welcomes the lifting of the alcohol ban following the moving of the country from Alert Level 4 to Alert Level 3.


Liquor traders are urged to obey the new regulations, which are largely intended to reduce the escalating cases of Covid 19 infections in our country.


During the current Alert Level 3, the sale of liquor by licensed premises for OFF-CONSUMPTION is only permitted from 10h00 to 18h00 excluding Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and public holidays. The sale of liquor for ON-CONSUMPTION is permitted form 10am to 20h00.


This is subject to all liquor outlets following strict Corvid 19 health protocols that entail limiting the number of people to half of the capacity of the outlet and keeping social distance of 1.5m from each other, washing of hands, sanitizing remains of paramount importance during this period.


“As liquor sale is unbanned, we wish to urge members of the society to always consume liquor in a responsible manner. We strongly condemn any inappropriate behaviour that some people show when they are intoxicated, which may result in incidents such as gender-based violence, rape and road accidents” said the ECLB CEO, Dr Makala.


The ECLB urges everyone to exercise caution and drink liquor in moderation. Working in collaboration with various law enforcement agencies, ECLB will continue to monitor compliance with the new regulations.


Members of the community are encouraged to report cases of non-compliance with liquor regulations to the nearest police station or call Eastern Cape Liquor Board Toll Free Number 080 000 0420 or WhatsApp number 076 403 6223.

Fraud undermines the fight against poverty by putting money that is meant for infrastructure and development into the pockets of corrupt officials. It increases the cost of public services and slows down service delivery to the public.
