"Walk your dog around your house" Bheki Cele


There will be no jogging, dog-walking or sale of alcohol, during the government-imposed 21-day lockdown, says Police Minister Bheki Cele.

Addressing reporters on Wednesday, Cele clarified that among a raft of prohibited movement, will be jogging and walking of dogs.

The regulations of the 24/7 curfew, which has specified exemptions, were released by Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma on Wednesday.

The Disaster [Management] Act says the movement of alcohol shall be limited, there shall be no movement of alcohol (during lockdown), that’s illegal. What you have at home, you consume it there at home, not next door.

Areas closed to the public include:

Religious, cultural, sporting, entertainment, educational, organisational and similar premises.

Parks, beaches and swimming pools, open food and flea markets and bazaars will also be closed, as will nightclubs and casinos.

Shebeens, Shisanyamas and taverns

Lodges and guest houses will also be closed, except those who already had tourists when the shutdown was announced.

Private and public game reserves, except those who are already housing tourists.

Theatres and cinemas, shopping malls and centres (excluding grocery stores and pharmacies).

Should these laws be broken, perpetrators face six months in jail and fines or both.
