Youngest Enyobeni tavern victim was only 13 years old

Police Minister Bheki Cele says the youngest victim of the Enyobeni tavern tragedy is 13 years old.

Addressing families outside the Brookwood Mortuary, Cele said minors aged between 13 and 17 died at the Scenery Park tavern.

Police had earlier said the victims were between 18 and 20.

Police spokesperson Brigadier Thembinkosi Kinana said 21 people have died.

Cele, who cried after seeing the children’s bodies at the mortuary, said: “The scene I have seen inside, it doesn’t matter what kind of a heart you have, you will be said. Firstly, the sight of those bodies sleeping there but when you look at their faces you realise that you’re dealing with kids. You’ve heard the story that they are young but when you see them you realise that it’s a disaster.”
