Popular radio host Karabo Ntshweng says she relates to the East London story that is making headlines in South Africa.
The Eastern Cape town is attracting interest from many global citizens for all the wrong reasons after it has emerged that 21 underage children had died at Enyobeni Tavern.
This ugly incident happened in the early hours of Sunday morning and details have emerged where some revellers say the young kids forced their way into the drinking hole.
At the same time, some parents are angry and believe the owner of the establishment, Siyakhangela Ndevu, should be arrested and be held to account.
In her latest social media post, the 5FM radio host says it pains to witness such a catastrophe and reveals it could have been her because she used to go to nightclubs as a teenager.
The stunning lady of the airwaves further disclosed that her first clubbing experience was at the age of 15 at a club in Johannesburg.
“There was a big underage clubbing culture in Joburg. Anything could’ve happened to us. I think I get horribly anxious when I hear about this story because I know damn well that could’ve been me a couple of years ago,” she wrote on social media.
Scores of her followers have also shared their stories and experience regarding underage clubbing and one social networker, A Sinxeke, reacted.
“I used to go to Snap Club in Cape Town I was 18. I’d lie to my mom and say I’m doing a sleepover at a trusted friend,” she responded.
While some people blamed poor parenting as one of the reasons that led to the devastation in Scenery Park, some believe it is because of peer pressure. Zodwa shared views.
“That’s where parenting comes in. My older sister tried it. But my mom is that Pink robe lady – she fetched her with imvubu. So the rest of us knew not to even dare, because imvubu kamama stays under her bed, ready for any nonsense,” she said.
