Sandton NightClub Blackdoor Manager Arrested

The manager of the popular Blackdoor Lifestyle Lounge in Sandton, Johannesburg, has been arrested this weekend for breaking lockdown regulations said police.

The South African Police Service, the Johannesburg Metropolitan Police Department, Gauteng Traffic Police and various other law enforcement agencies took part in an operation to bust venues that did not comply with regulations.

More than 300 patrons were allegedly found at the Blackdoor Lifestyle Lounge after the midnight curfew.  Footage taken during the bust shows the venue packed to capacity.  No social distancing regulations were followed and according to minister of police Bheki Cele, not one of the patrons were wearing a mask.  “It tells you that if the second waves comes, not many will survive.”

Lirandzu Themba, the Police Minister’s Spokesperson, confirmed that the manager of Blackdoor had been arrested for operating a business without a liquor licence and breaking the lockdown level one regulations as stipulated by the Corona Command Council and Minister of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs, Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma.

The manager was detained at the Sandton police station.  According to Themba, liquor to the value of R800,000 was seized by law enforcement agencies.

In Midrand, at the well known, or rather infamous,  XO Lounge, formerly known as Teazers, police found employees still on the premises after midnight.  Each employee was fined R1,000 before they could be released.
