  • SA's drinking age may be raised

    SA MAY raise its drinking age and hold beverage companies liable for unlicensed trade in their products, a step to reduce the cost and impact of alcohol abuse. The government proposed increasing the minimum age for consuming alcohol to 21 from 18, the Department of Trade and Industry said in a notice published on Wednesday in the official Government Gazette. A third of all hospital admissions in South Africa are related to alcohol, and birth defects linked to drink are as much as 141 times higher than in the US, the document said. The World Health Organisation estimates the cost of harmful use of alcohol in SA may exceed 10% of gross domestic product.

In the Mail & Guardian, Trevor Ncube fingered South Africa’s laagered elite and, in the online edition, Heribert Adam and Kogila Moodley pointed to this country’s peculiar collective psyche.
