  1. What kind of the people are coming from Solwezi all the cases of killing each other from drinking it’s Solwezi. What kind of beer do they drink?

  2. Alcohol is directly responsible for more violent deaths and road accidents than any other substance and yet we allow it to remain legal and promote its consumption. Beer tarverns remain a gathering point where acts of crime such as theft, rape and murder are often planned before being carried out by thugs. Why do we allow Chibuku tarverns to operate after 19hrs by the roadside is what I fail to understand, can people responsible stop this vice, money is not as important as life and security. Even these recent mob justice attacks were often crafted by thugs found at beer taverns.
