Restaurants endure ‘punishing’ wait for liquor licences, RASA claims

Alberts says they have been fielding complaints from businesses across the country, with many claiming their provincial liquor boards are dragging their feet.

“They blame that the inability to get the licences is due to the performance of lockdown, load shedding and these are miserable excuses.”
