A moment of silence: Funeral procession for Enyobeni tavern victims

JUST IN | Some of the coffins carrying the corpses of some of the 21 eNyobeni Tavern victims lined up inside the gigantic marquee pitched up at Scenery Park Sports Field in East London ( Eastern Cape Province )

Mourners, including President Cyril Ramaphosa, have gathered in Scenery Park,

The official program of the #EnyobeniTavern victims is expected to start shortly. Two have already been buried, two more will be buried after today's mass funeral services while 17 others will be buried between Friday and Sunday. 


This is an event that has made history in South Africa. This what has happened is a very unfortunate event, I just hope that our kids have learnt from this. All our kids want are night clubs and parties more than anything else. Their love for alcohol is more than anything else. This event has happening last week, the the 22 kids lost their lives over the love of good time.

I believe that their parents did not even know their whereabouts. I believe that baby sneaked out of the houses or they did not tell their parents what they would do after school, where they will go after they are dismissed. So this event here has just taught us as parents, to try by all means to be strict to our kids and discipline them accordingly.

Thank you.
