Government has been working hard to enforce strict measures during the lockdown. Some have been calling for the government to lift the ban of alcohol and cigarettes. Mnguni said Fita was concerned at the sale of Vaping products despite a lockdown. The sale of cigarettes and alcohol has been prohibited as the country deals with the spread of COVID-19.
