Western Cape MEC of Economic
Opportunities Alan Winde has welcomed the suspension of the liquor license of Osi’s
Place in Makaza, Khayelitsha.
This is after eight people
several of them underage died after a steel staircase gave away last week
The Provincial Liquor
Authority made the decision this morning and MEC Winde says this is a victory
for the Liquor Authority and the community of Khayelitsha.
Bronwynne Jooste said this is a warning to all traders who are bringing the
harm in the communities in the Western Cape that irresponsible behaviour will not
be tolerated and while the Western Cape liquor authorities will continue to work
for the City of Cape Town and SAPS to conduct regular operations.
“We also need residence to partner
up with us to root out all those who are breaking the law”.
Together we can stand up and
fight the negative impact of alcohol abuse, Jooste added.
