The tragedy that took place at a neighborhood tavern in the Eastern Cape province continues to cause pain for the people of South Africa. The vast majority of people were caught off guard by this development. The rate at which South Africa’s youth are dying is unfathomable. Everything could have been prevented if the guidelines and regulations had been adhered to. Children younger than 18 years old are not allowed to consume alcohol or be present in establishments serving alcoholic beverages. On the other hand, nothing was checked, and people of every age proceeded to the Enyobeni tavern, where they waited for the calamity to take place.Image
When the news came out that about 20 people had been found dead in a bar in the Eastern Cape, it was shocking. Parents ran to the scene of the crime, and what they saw there was terrible. Some parents are directly affected because their children were hurt and they too lost something.

By simply looking at what was found inside this tavern when the inspections continued, one can tell that it was packed and overcrowded. The clothes and shoes belong to some of the victims, and it not clear if they took of their clothes when chaos erupted or everything happened before. Someone needs to be held accountable for what has happened. Not only the owner should be charged, but also a thorough investigation should be made to determine who might have triggered chaos at the begging that led to many children losing their lives inside this tavern
