The restaurant industry is taking its frustrations to the streets.
Restaurant owners are calling for some of the lockdown regulations to be eased as their businesses are taking financial strain.
However, regarding the protest, no permission has been granted, but the restaurant owners are going ahead with it anyway, not minding the repercussions that might follow suit.
The Restaurant Association of South Africa has been building momentum for the protest using the hashtag – #JobsSaveLives.
