Police minister Bheki Cele cracked the whip on Wednesday, a day ahead of an unprecedented 21-day lockdown, announcing no alcohol would be sold and no dog-walking would be allowed.

This came after his own health minister offered a ray of hope to dog owners and runners.

An inter-ministerial press briefing was held in Pretoria to address key points around the #SAlockdown on March 25 2020. Ministers from the social, economic, security and governance clusters addressed key points around the Covid-19 pandemic and #SALockdown. Some of the points raised were about movement, public transport and the prohibiting of alcohol during the 21-day lockdown.
