One youth leader says the community warned the owner of the Enyobeni Tavern to stop selling liquor to children several times.

He said: "We can't just sit like nothing happened. We've complained and we've engaged with him several times. It's been happening since last year. We reported it to the police but we were not taken seriously. This is enough.

"We can't take it anymore, we want to ensure this does not happen again in Scenery Park."
