BRYANSTON – Half of the South African population support the draft bylaw which would prevent guesthouses, pubs, clubs and theatres in Cape Town residential areas from selling alcohol past 9pm. This is according to African Response’s 2010 Barometer.
The bylaw has caused a significant amount of debate ahead of the 2010 World Cup because one of the implications is that the European tourist for example, will not be able to go for dinner outside of the city after 9pm. A large chunk of South Africans (41%) do not think that passing this law is a good idea.
With 436 days left to kickoff, 80% of South Africans are confident that with all our preparation, our country will be ready for the 2010 World Cup.
African Response’s 2010 Barometer is a monthly poll which was established to track public perceptions on the progress of South Africa’s preparations for the 2010 Soccer World Cup. March’s results represent the views of 400 respondents interviewed in Durban, Johannesburg, Pretoria and Cape Town in February this year.
