Four people died and eight were admitted to hospital after a shooting at a tavern in Pietermaritzburg on Saturday. About the same time, 15 people were shot dead and at least nine others wounded at a Soweto tavern.
It follows the deaths of 21 underage children in Scenery Park, East London.
As South Africans speculated over the motives behind the murders, Jackie said it could be sabotage.
“Someone is trying to sabotage the township economy, creating explosive agendas that black people’s taverns are unsafe. They are forcing the government to revoke licences while they prepare their own ‘tavern rollout’ to control alcohol sales and business. ‘New taverns’ will pop us soon,” she claimed.
