The ban on jogging, walking of dogs and alcohol sales during the nationwide lockdown was almost the tip of the iceberg for some South Africans.
On Wednesday the government made a U-turned on its decision to allow people to walk their dogs and jogging, saying it was banned. They added to the burn by confirming that booze would not be fore sale during the 21-day period.

“There shall be no movement of liquor from point A to B. If we find liquor in your car’s boot, that is illegal. If you break these laws, you are six months in jail or fined,” he said.
