Zimbabwe Moves To Ban Sales Of Alcohol During Weekdays

Zimbabwe's alcoholic beverage companies Delta Corporation and African Distillers are set to either brace themselves for a fight with the government or face reduced sales amid plans to restrict alcohol consumption in the country.

According to The Sunday Mail, the Zimbabwean government's new National Alcohol Policy is meant to curb sales of alcohol.

The policy proposes barring the sale of alcohol during the week, regulating hours of sale, and providing guidelines for the consumption of alcohol during special events like parties and weddings on the basis of the venue in which they are held.

The policy is said to be the brainchild of former Zimbabwe health minister Dr Timothy Stamps, who is now health adviser in the office of the president and cabinet.
