CAPE TOWN – Residents of Scenery Park in East London have criticized the Eastern Cape government over the toxicology report into the deaths of 21 teenagers at Enyobeni Tavern.

They believe the provincial government is covering up the real cause of death after the victims’ families said they were told suffocation was the cause of the teens’ deaths.

The Scenery Park Youth Development Forum rejected this as the official cause of death.

He said he believed a drug or toxic substance was to blame for the deaths, as the youngster was allegedly given free drinks on the night.

Maxwell Kamte from the dev forum also claimed that the tavern owner is back in business.

“He opened another tavern in Ziphunzana and is living his life. He walks around saying he’s untouchable,” he said.

Kamte added that the community was threatening to burn down the Enyobeni tavern as it holds sad memories for the families of the deceased.
