The country is currently under alert level 3 of lockdown with many restrictions put in place including alcohol. In a video she posted on her Twitter account, the outspoken TV star started by commending South Africans for adhering to the alert level 3 lockdown regulations. This follows after Chris Baragwanath hospital reported zero new trauma patients on new year's eve.

Khanyi also is also in the alcohol industry as she has her own gin brand. She questioned whether hospitals reported zero trauma cases because there was a strict curfew implemented which had many people indoors and said she is raising this topic because she is also in the alcohol industry and many people who work in this industry will be affected by the ban this January.

"Was it because law enforcement was out, there was a strict curfew and there were no parties allowed because I doubt that when the president banned the alcohol it made the alcohol disappear. People had alcohol in their homes.  The reason why I am raising this is because it is January, schools are about to open there are families and people that work in the liquor industry that cannot go back to work, earn a living and support their families and make sure that their children go back to school,"
Mbau said.

"I am in the alcohol industry, I have a gin, what happens to my staff what do I do to help them live their lives and have a better 2021 that was better than 2020?" she added.
