Liquor traders to hear from govt
Johannesburg - Existing and new liquor traders in Gauteng were to receive information from government on how the industry was to operate, according to reports on Saturday.
Gauteng economic development MEC Qedani Mahlangu was expected to reveal details of the draft Gauteng Liquor Act at a press conference in Johannesburg on Sunday, reported the Saturday Star.
The department introduced a moratorium on liquor licenses in August last year in a move to curb challenges faced by the industry.
Department spokesperson Mandla Sidu said Mahlangu would announce what progress had been made since the moratorium came into effect.
Mahlangu's announcement would also touch on how the new legislation would affect trading hours, license conditions and license applications.
