Details are beginning to emerge about how 21 people, mostly teenagers, died in a nightclub in South Africa.
The tragic incident happened at the Enyobeni Tavern on Saturday night. Reports have indicated that people who went to the Enyobeni Tavern in the city of East London were celebrating the end of school exams.
And the entertainment manager of Enyobeni Tavern, Promise Matinise, in quotes carried by the BBC in its report sighted by African Entertainment, narrated how the 21 people died.
Mr. Matinise was quoted as saying he “saw people falling one after the other after bouncers struggled to control large crowds that had entered the establishment”.
The Entertainment Manager was further quoted as saying that “at first he assumed they had passed out from drinking too much and then realised that some had stopped breathing”.
As the people were dying in the club, Matinise reportedly said the workers of the club called its owner to inform him of what was happening.
According to him, the club usually hosted large crowds, but that this past weekend it seemed like more people had attended the event.
Meanwhile, South African authorities have already revoked the nightclub’s permit to sell alcoholic beverages.
Authorities say they suspect the deaths are linked to poisoning.
