Buhle Samuels wants South Africans to drink responsibly under Level 3 lockdown.
The actress' warning comes after President Cyril Ramaphosa's announcement that alcohol sale will be allowed from 1 June.
The stunner said she hoped the few weeks that alcohol sale was banned in Mzansi gave peeps a chance to deal with their past issues.
"On a serious note: I hope not having alcohol has made us better people, cut dependencies where they were, perhaps giving us a chance to deal with past issues. I hope we are more whole than we were before. Let’s be responsible and rational in our future."
Most South Africans celebrated when the announcement was made on Sunday night. Vuvuzelas, fireworks and ululations could be heard shortly after Ramaphosa addressed the nation.
Social media user, @SaneleBGumede_, told Buhle that he felt that the decision by government to lift the ban on alcohol sale would fail dismally because "people are not going to abide by the rules and regulations of consuming alcohol in their homes".
"They'll want to drink in groups and have house parties."
Buhle replied that it was in the hands of the citizens to be responsible when boozing.
"Yeah probably. The inevitable truth is that at some point, the government has to give us, the people, a chance to decide how responsible we are going to be - no matter how much they delay. Jokes aside, it really is in our hands."

The Muvhango added that she was cool with or without booze amid the Covid-19 lockdown.
"I'm just having fun with the whole thing but I am hoping for the best, that's all we can do at this point."
Briefly.co.za reported that Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma has rescheduled the National Coronavirus Command Council (NCCC) briefing to Wednesday.
The NCCC was due to address the nation on Tuesday. Dlamini-Zuma was expected to reveal finer details of Level 3 lockdown during the briefing.
