There’s no let up to the anguish on South African Facebook and WhatsApp as middle-class pantries and wine racks run bare of booze, yet will the government listen to their plight? They will not. Prohibition remains in place, and as a result the brewery formerly known as SAB (now AB Inbev) says it may have to destroy 130 000 000 litres of beer. For context, that’s roughly enough beer to make the Alexandra Dam in Cape Town overflow.
