PE nightclub fined for breaking alcohol ban


A Port Elizabeth nightclub has been fined for selling alcohol after 6 pm in breach of regulations aimed at curbing the spread of the coronavirus.

Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality said that a fine of R2500 was imposed on the nightclub in Central on Friday night.

Metro Police Chief Yolande Faro said the “non-compliance fine” was imposed in accordance with regulation 8 as published in the Government Gazette limiting the sale, dispensing or transportation of liquor between 6 pm and 9 am on weekdays and Saturdays.

Meanwhile, the Metro’s Director for Disaster Management, Shane Brown, said this decisive action is indicative of the stern consequences facing individuals disregarding the regulations published as part of the national disaster proclamation.

“We would like to appeal to clergy, funeral directors and families to ensure that no more than 100 people are present at church or funeral services.

“We are working closely with the police to ensure that compliance is enforced. No exceptions will be tolerated,” Brown said.
