A civic leader in Mandevu constituency has warned of stern action against people operating shabeens and illegal taverns in his ward.
Ngwerere ward 19 councilor Adrian Banda says he has noted with regret the mushrooming of Shabeens in the area.
Speaking in an interview with Komboni radio news, councilor Banda says that he is working with the area member of parliament to eradicate these Shabeens.
He regrets that the mushrooming of the illegal Shabeens and taverns have contributed to bad behaviour among young people in the community.
Councilor Banda has noted that many youths in that community are engaging in criminal activities and are attacking innocent people at night after consuming alcohol from these illegal shabeens.
