The City of Cape Town's Liquor Enforcement and Compliance Unit joined forces with the South African Police Services (SAPS) over the long weekend to clamp down on illegal shebeens and liquor traders and to enforce compliance with the City's existing by-laws.


The Liquor Unit and SAPS focused on premises in the Strand, Somerset West, Gordon's Bay and Kuils River areas and issued a total of 29 spot fines that amounted to R30 000.

The Unit targeted certain shebeens for which they have received numerous complaints from the public. As a result, eight shebeens were fined for operating without permission from the City, one person was arrested for running a shebeen illegally and alcohol worth R870 was confiscated.

Businesses were also fined for contravening the Business Act, as well as the Community Safety By-Law.

The operations form part of the City's ongoing clamp-down on illegal shebeens and nightclubs to ensure compliance with existing City by-laws.
