OPINION: Why would Mandela family call for alcohol ban?

The whole country is saddened by the terrifying incident which occurred at "Enyobeni" tarven in East London where 21 people lost their lives. We all sympathize with the families who lost their loved ones. Hopefully the South African Police services will get to the bottom of that case and justice will be served.

However it is alleged that the Mandela family has called for the ban of alcohol. I honestly agree with that idea because alcohol has destroyed many people's lives. I honestly think the Mandela family is absolutely correct to call for alcohol ban and somebody has to step up we certainly cannot have another incident simular to that of Enyobeni tarven. Hopefully the government will enforce strict law when its come to alcohol sales. I honesty understand and I agree with the Mandela family , alcohol has destroyed many families and many people have lost their lives because of it. Something needs to be done to prevent that from happening again.

We loved and respected Nelson Mandela he was a liberation struggle hero a noble leader and think his grandchildren are following his footsteps. However I emphasize that people should drink responsible and be more cautious when it comes to partying. I strongly agree with this idea of alcohol ban it is good for everyone.

However in my humble opinion I think the authorities should take extreme measures aganst the owner of "Enyobeni" tarven. They should arrest him and close down the place because according to the law alcohol should not be sold for persons under the age of 18 , so what was a 13 year old doing inside his tarven. I think he broke the law and should be arrested , and the families who lost their loved ones deserve justice. However this is solely based on my opinion I know that people see things differently especially when it comes to social and political issues.
