A TAVERN in Nchodu village found to have contravened the Liquor Act was shut down by Maluti SAPS on Friday. SAPS spokesperson Lieutenant Raphael Motloung said Masakaneng Tavern owner Pitso Tuta had refused to comply with a police instruction to sign a Liquor Regulation warning after a patron was assaulted in the tavern at a time it was supposed to have closed for the night.
“This means he was operating illegally,” said Motloung. The tavern has been closed for 15 days, pending a compliance investigation. - Supplied.
