Democratic Alliance councillor Taki Amira reportedly made a recommendation yesterday to City of Cape Town councillors that the draft bylaw be amended in the section regarding champagne breakfasts.

Amira reportedly asked that the word "liquor" be replaced with "sparkling wine" as the alcoholic beverage was allowed at breakfast events.

"This is a discrimination to some of the people who don't believe in sparkling wine [sic]," ANC councillor Daniel Mphila was quoted as saying.

He reportedly said he’d want to drink traditional beer with breakfast.

"This thing is against the Constitution. It is discriminatory," Mphila reportedly said.

The city's councillors approved the new bylaw ? Control of Undertakings that Sell Liquor to the Public, 2013 ? yesterday.

It was expected to come into effect on 1 February.
