JOHANNESBURG – The restaurant industry wants one million seats placed on the streets around South Africa to protest lockdown regulations.
Widely considered as one of the industries hardest-hit by government’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic, restaurant owners, staff, patrons and others are planning to make their voices heard on Wednesday.
President Cyril Ramaphosa is being invited to take a seat at an empty table.
The Restaurant Association of South Africa has been building momentum for the protest using the hashtag “jobs save lives”.
