The Constitution was drafted for the provision of laws and regulations. My question to the leaders and law enforcement bodies is: Why are shebeen owners being forced to close their businesses today? Where was the enforcement during the 22 years that have elapsed? Does that means the laws on which liquor license was stipulated was not taken seriously by our law enforcement officers? Houses are broken down, where does this system come from?
Give temporary liquor licenses to shebeen owners and charge them for it every time they should come to renew until they have obtained permanent licenses. Don’t close their businesses or penalise them because it is not good to let innocent people to pay a fine, unless the law is perverted. Why do our leaders wait until it is late to solve problems, rather than tackle the issues immediately?
Look at what is happening to the ‘struggle kids’, they are beaten or locked up and after that the Prime Minister suddenly has alternatives for them such as paying their courses if any of them registered or found a school. Where was this before?
How many people are writing letters every day in newspapers? Is there nothing to take from their complaints? There is a big message from those written stories. Take it and make a change.
