Cut shebeen hours to curb drinking

When young people get bored, there are two things they have quick access to: alcohol and sex.

So said Savera Kalideen, senior advocacy manager at Soul City Institute for Heath and Development Communication.

Speaking at a Johannesburg press conference on licencing and law enforcement in the informal liquor sector yesterday, Kalideen said Soul City researchers working on the institute’s responsible drinking PhuzaWise campaign had been told by youth that drinking alcohol was “cheaper than going to the movies”.

This easy access to alcohol meant abuse amongst youngsters was one of the country’s major problems, she said.
