JOHANNESBURG - A massive alcohol lobby is responsible for the deaths of 21 teens at Enyobeni Tavern.

That's the view of the National Youth Development Agency.

It says the lobby must be held accountable and take action to prevent further tragedies.

The agency is also calling for alcohol advertising to be banned.

"They need to look at themselves to ensure alcohol is distributed in a way that protects kids and women from GBV," said Waseem Carrim.

"That conversation and regulation is critical at this point in time."
