The City of Cape Town is once more warning the public against bringing liquor to beaches as the festive season approaches. The city has today dumped over 12-thousand litres of alcohol that was confiscated at public spaces during the previous financial year. Mayoral Committee Member for Safety, JP Smith, says most criminal incidents during the festive period occur as a result of drunkenness. “i’ts been against our by-laws for 15 years or more, the prohibition on glass and alcohol on the beach, and it is how we’ve managed to bring down our drownings because alcohol lies at the centre of our misery over this time. The drownings and near drownings, the pedestrian fatalities of people going home, the conflicts and fights that people that get involved in, reducing the amount of liquor in the beach makes it a more pleasant experience for everybody else.”

  1. Logic tells me this alcohol cost money to manufacture… it also cost money to purchase it. Now given that economic resources went into producing it, I don’t get the logic of wasting it? Could this alcohol not be auctioned and the moneys earned from it go towards social uplifting ??‍♂️

  2. JP and the D.A are implementing draconian laws. I think I will not vote for them next election. Freedom is not so free.

  3. If the bottles are sealed, its suppose to be returned to the owner, not thrown out. Or does WCape have their own rules? I see a lot of sealed bottles.
