Selling liquor to learners is against the law

2015-10-29 06:00

It’s really embarrassing to see kids in school uniform being drunk during the week.

I don’t think these children are over 18 and they should not be allowed to buy liquor. The laws regulating the selling and the buying of liquor stipulates booze shouldn’t be sold to anyone below 18.

I wonder where these schoolkids could have bought their liquor and who the person is who undermines the law and sells liquor to schoolkids.

Tavern and shebeen owners should stop selling liquor to these young children.

They should know that by selling booze to schoolkids that they’re breaking the law. The worst is that they’re destroying these young children’s futures. Our schoolkids should quit boozing because they’ll achieve nothing good in life if they’re addicted to alcohol.
