A hilarious social media thread where Mzansi peeps show off their banned goods has garnered over 4000 retweets and comments.
Since it's the end of the month and the start of the weekend, many peeps would be looking to the black market to get their supplies of their giggle juice and ciggies.
The thread posted by tweep, @porshe418, lowkey advertises cigarettes and booze to fellow South Africans who want to buy the banned goods. The sale of cigarettes and alcohol has been banned in the country amid the Covid-19 lockdown.
Briefly.co.za reported a few days ago that a recent post from an official government account on social media is causing a stir after claiming that the ban on liquor and tobacco is here to stay as long as SA remains under lockdown.
“The ban on the sale of alcohol and cigarette will remain in place throughout the lockdown period. The purpose is to save lives and protect the health and well-being of our people. #AlcoholBan."
Below are some of the comments from tweeps who have participated in the thread.
"Hey guys. I do nails for R180. Please rt my client could be on your TL."
"Do you have these towels?"
"Do you know any garden guy around who's gonna do my grass for atleast R700?"
