Just days after South Africa announced re-imposition of a ban on alcohol to curb the spread of coronavirus, thieves have broken into a liquor store in Cape Town.

According to local news outlet News24 the thieves broke into the store taking away all kinds of alcoholic drinks.

“They basically emptied the whiskies out,” Mark Kallend, shop owner of Liquor Bothasig, told News24 about the incident early on Tuesday morning.

“They ripped the safety gate off with their vehicle… they tied a rope around it and yanked it off. They then threw a boulder through the window,” he said.

The decision by President Cyril Ramaphosa on Sunday to reinstate the alcohol ban divided opinions.
