Eastern Cape authorities hold private meeting with parents of Enyobeni victims

Authorities in the Eastern Cape held a meeting on Monday with the parents of the 21 young people who died in Enyobeni Tavern last weekend.

The meeting was held behind closed doors at Scenery Park.

This while the deputy mayor of Buffalo City Municipality and the liquor board conducted site inspections in taverns across the township to ensure that owners were complying with regulations and laws.

Deputy mayor Princess Faku met with liquor board authorities to conduct site inspections in at least 19 taverns in Scenery Park.

Faku said they would have zero tolerance against traders who chose to break liquor laws and placed innocent lives in danger: “What is important now is that lessons have to be learnt, and what we are getting from the parents is that we need to save more lives. They are saying that this is our responsibility as communities.”

But some residents said that clamping down on unscrupulous tavern owners was long overdue and stricter laws had to be implemented.

The mass funeral service of the teenagers who lost their lives is expected to take place in Scenery Park on Wednesday.
