The Enyobeni Disaster Of Truth About Us

Read Time:3 Minute, 11 Second

The Nyobeni Tavern calamity is just another one of those…,Overall, an occasion that brought out the showman and his hat to play to the gallery.

Tears by thee on the scene be seen Bheki Cele, South African Police minister, have long dried. His eyes desiccated in no time to clear the way for his self-righteous lecture on parenting. By now, lessons should have got learnt. South Africa has posers as leaders – ever ready to quack from one incident to another.

On that account, the sooner South Africans make sanity, progress, peace and prosperity in their communities their businesses, the better. In the wake of mass death at the Eastern Cape drinking hole, several root causes of the social decay got uprooted Thus, to be seriously consider is the proposition by Zee @Zee89442972 regarding ‘an honest national conversation about dysfunction intrinsic to, particularly, black communities.’

Look No Further Than The African Nose

Hence making sense are Su EL-Musician and Amu Faku, who light the candle…, Into Ingawe. In truth, what happens in black communities -in general- derives its source and strength from within that society.
That is, in essence, Into Ingathi muz’onsundu. A while back, Louis Farrakhan said misfortunes of black people emanate from black people themselves. So, all that some Africans and other nations do is exploit and capitalize on the weaknesses of black people.

For this reason, the tragedy of Enyobeni Tavern and many others must Nyusa…, Yes, it is yet another kind of umshophi -tragedy- that should raise awareness about the psychologically disruptive and destructive going ons, particularly in black communities. For example, Kwena Molekwa @Ruraltarain_2 points out, ‘there are problems with township taverns and shebeens selling alcohol to underage children. Several police officers, mainly black, take bribes to look the other way as black lives and communities get destroyed.’

Alcohol Is No Problem, The Conditioning Is

Then there are some, like Official Rakgadi Soldier @Rakgadi_EM saying alcohol is overrated, and no one wants to speak against alcohol. But banning alcohol advertising on tv and radio, as @ntsikimazwai proposes, is not likely to hit the mark. Neither will the endeavours to command ama2000 or black youth succeed.

That is because, as Kamogelo Sekgala @Kamogelosekgala says, they are a resistant generation to control.’ Besides, to nanny the young is hardly going to help develop their ability to respond (responsibility) in a sustainable, socially acceptable and desirable manner.

Consequently, blacks have to, perhaps, start heeding Harold Melvin and Blue Notes’ call. Everybody must wake up because continued sleeping on minds is suffocating, blacks in particular. Therefore the control Sekgala talks about should guide in enlightening black children and youth more about the significance of self-control. Such should help manage the power of ‘our celebrities and influencers who make alcohol fashionable and cool,’ according to Zinhle @ Zinhle_intombi.

Zombies Are Overly Controlled And Influenced Externally

Marcus Garvey said, and Bob Marley sang the words even to greater fame. “Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery. None but ourselves can free our minds.” Therefore, the liberation of the black mind from the chains of excessiveness is essential. Thus mental emancipation could happen out of heightened awareness about the power of self-command of an individual’s mind. In that way, blacks could turn around a tweet by @thaboBlac, who wrote, ‘May all those young souls rest in power.’ Instead, black society could call for and strive for its young ones to live in power.

Moreover, liquor producers and traders must get pressured to donate a percentage of their profits towards the cause of community social education. It is not enough to say drink responsibly, not for persons under 18 years.

Meanwhile, anxiously, Cele and his hat probably await the next tragedy.
