North West Premier Thandi Modise has called for a clampdown on illegal liquor trading. 

This follows the murder of a 15-year-old girl whose body was found dead in a shallow grave in Verdwaal village.

Premier Modise said communities need to work with police to ensure that shebeens and taverns that have underage children as patrons are closed and their trading licenses withdrawn. 

Premier Modise spokesperson Lesiba Kgwele said that Premier Modise has called for intensified enforcement of liquor laws and that clamp down on liquor outlets that are violating their conditions of trade.

Kgwele adds that there is a need to reclaim streets and neighbourhoods from criminals as it can’t be afforded to loose more children to lawlessness and the greed of those who entice them with alcohol and drugs at these tender ages.

Kgwele said that the Minister has called on the community to come forward with any information that might assist police in their investigation and lead to arrests of the person or persons that are responsible for the horrible matter.
