Minnie Dlamini’s Opinion Of The Alcohol Ban Didn’t Sit Well With Her Fans

TV Presenter Minnie Dlamini got some of her followers in a tizz when she claimed that the alcohol ban during lockdown may be a good thing.

Day 12 into the national lockdown, some have reached the drastic “take one teaspoon three times a day” stage with their last bottle of the fire water.

That may be the reason why most people were in their feels when Minnie suggested that she appreciates the alcohol ban on some level.

“Domestic violence in SA is a major issue and I can’t help but appreciate the alcohol ban on that level. It’s not fun but it won’t be forever … small sacrifices,” she wrote on Twitter this week.

“I’m not saying alcohol is the only reason for domestic violence but it has been identified as a major contributing factor in most cases,” She added.

Police Minister Bheki Cele last Thursday confirmed that police had received more than 87,000 gender-based violence complaints.

Many on Twitter, took that number as the basis for their argument that alcohol is not the sole reason for gender-based violence.

A follower seemed to have a different take on the matter and even provided links to an article about GBV and alcohol.
Simphiwe hit back.

“The article says alcohol exacerbates the occurrence and severity of GBV. Nowhere does it say it causes it. Alcohol doesn’t create abusers. Abusers are made worse by alcohol. This distinction is important,” she said in response.
