IMAGINE going into a liquor store and getting a free glass of water and a condom . . .Tavern owner Thibi Segela_362x239_B

This could be the case if proposed changes to liquor laws come into effect!

The changes not only apply to bottle stores but also to nightclubs, restaurants and pubs.

Anyone who wants to buy more than 25 litres of alcohol in a liquor store will have to provide their name, contact number, address and reason for buying it.

Traders will be forbidden from selling liquor to anyone who appears to be drunk, and it will be illegal for parents to give minors alcohol.

The deadline for the public to submit their comments about this is 4 January.

Soweto tavern owner Thibi Segole (49) told Daily Sun: “I support giving away condoms. I receive free government condoms from my supplier.

“People are ashamed of taking them in front of other people, but my customers manage to finish a box full of condoms in a month.”

Customer Tshitsho Koma (42) said he was not sure about giving his personal details to any liquor store.

“Why so much information? I don’t think I will do that. It is not safe at all,” he said.

SunReaders had this to say on Facebook:

Katleho Ralosi: “They should focus on banning e-tolls, not making new laws.”

Jantjies Sago: “The economy of our country will benefit because there won’t be any unplanned pregnancies!”

Fhatu Wa Maumane: “Who came up with such an idiotic idea?”

Amanda Manqele: “Adults know what they are doing. I don’t think this will work.”

Mashianoke Phago: “As a barman it’s not my duty to teach patrons about sex but to ensure they are safe.”
