Community taverns should be shut down, according to Inkosi Zwelivelile Mandla Mandela.


"The Royal House of Mandela is demanding for the closure of community taverns after at least 20 young people died early Sunday in Scenery Park, East London," claims Inkosi Zwelivelile Mandla Mandela, head of Mvezo village and grandson of former president Nelson Mandela."


Following the unexplained deaths of 17 clients at Enyobeni Tavern, the establishment was shut down. Another three people died in the hospital, and two more were critically ill. As no obvious injuries were found on any of the victims, the Daily Dispatch initially speculated that guests had been poisoned.


Mandela urged for immediate action, including the closure of community pubs and a complete ban on alcohol, to prevent future tragedies like this one from occurring again.


Many underlying social problems, according to him, were made worse by drinking.

There are many parents who are concerned about the pandemic of sex crimes against women that includes children and even abogogo [elders]." "Nonetheless,.


More than minors and young people, Mandela claimed, were at risk from the establishment of community pubs.


As a result of the tragic events of the Enyobeni Tavern tragedy and others, we believe that such justifications are absurd.


"Civil society organizations and CBOs are urged to join the campaign for a ban on the selling of alcohol. "It's time we put an end to those who slaughter our children and profit from their lives," declared Nelson Mandela.
