MEC Pinky Phosa also added that the Mpumalanga Liquor Board issued 71 new licences from 758 applications in the 2012/2013 financial year. Spokesman Mohau Ramodibe explained that the majority of rejected applications were as a result of outlets being situated close to schools or places of worship. MEC Phosa also announced that R6.6 million have been budgeted for the establishment of the new Mpumalanga Liquor Authority.
Does Mpumalanga need a new Liquor Board? Do you expect the new Liquor Authority to be more efficient that the current Liquor Board?
