It's not just the beach: Durban promenades will close on Wednesday

Sewpersad said the same would apply to areas north and south of Durban, such as the promenades in Umhlanga and Ansteys Beach on the Bluff.

“We will have a strong police presence with our K9, mounted, public order policing, street crime and crime prevention units all present throughout the city.”

Combined with the beach and promenade closures the joint operation would also see a number of roadblocks being set up throughout Durban as law enforcers crack down on drunk drivers and those drinking in public.

“I must emphasise, we will be coming down hard on those who are caught drinking in any public areas, including parks,” he added.

On Monday, Ramaphosa announced that all beaches and public parks would be closed in the Eastern Cape, along the Garden Route in the Western Cape and in KwaZulu-Natal.
