Owners asked to make taverns safe

2016-06-29 06:00

AN appeal has been made to tavern owners to ensure that people who visit or enter their premises are searched and do not possess dangerous weapons.

The Galeshewe police, who made the appeal, requested that all the confiscated weapons be handed over to the police.

This is after the realisation by the Galeshewe police that most of their assaults are alcohol-related and frequently happen inside taverns.

Sgt Majang Skalkie said that tavern owners should also encourage their customers to drink responsibly.
