South African children are drinking from a young age and our country has the unenviable ranking of being the sixth-largest consumer of alcohol in the world. Young people are in fact, drinking from as young as 13 years of age, which is illegal. It is illegal for persons under the age 18 to buy and consume alcohol.
A young man shared a picture of children below the age of 18 holding alcohol. This young man's Twitter username is Daniel Marven. In the picture he shared, these children were holding green bottles of alcohol. They also looked underage.
People were shocked by this. They said that parents allow their children to drink alcohol during festive seasons and Christmas time.They also mentioned that alcohol should not be advertised in Televisions, Radios and Billboards.
