Police Minister Bheki Cele at one of the Police sites in Cape Town where he destroyed 20,000 litres of booze

Police Minister Bheki Cele said that alcohol abuse was one of the main contributors of crime around the country.

He was speaking at the South African Police Service (SAPS)’s central liquor storage facility in Belhar where 20,000 litres of alcohol were destroyed.

The sale of alcohol has been restricted at times during the lockdown with hospitals saying that alcohol abuse sees a rise in patients.

Beer, gin, wine and spirits were flushed away by Minister Cele, Community Safety MEC for Community Safety Albert Fritz and officers.

 

Cele said that one of the problems when it came to alcohol sales, was that there was too much leeway around the country.

“Contributes a lot on the abuse including murder, rape and all that,” he said.
