    KZN shooting: Tuckshop was ILLEGALLY selling alcohol – Liquor Authority

    In related news, it was previously reported that the KwaZulu-Natal Liquor Authority (KZNLA) has confirmed that the Siqhophokazi Tuckshop in Mariannhill, where seven people were killed, is unlicensed and trading liquor illegally.

    This comes after a group of unknown armed men opened fire at a tuckshop in Mariannhill. Police had initially reported that six people lost their lives in the shooting. But a seventh died in hospital, police spokesperson Brigadier Jay Naicker.

    KZNLA says it is working with the South African Police Service (SAPS) to take the necessary steps to ensure the tuckshop is shut down and that it faces the ‘mighty hand of the law’. The Authority confirmed that its mandate main is to regulate licensed outlets, but its secondary mandate is to enter unlicensed premises accompanied by the SAPS to conduct inspections.

    Speaking about the KZN Liquor Licensing Act, it said that the powers to seize liquor in terms of illegal trading are in the hands of the SAPS. Read the full story here.
