The illegal alcohol trade costs South Africans R6 billion every year which could be spent on building schools.

An estimated 500 million litres of dangerous illegal alcohol is consumed in South Africa every year.

The illicit alcohol trade is completely unregulated, there are no restrictions on what criminals are selling or who they’re selling to. Not only does illegal alcohol often contain fatal levels of alcohol and toxic ingredients, but it also costs the country’s finances over 16 million rand every single day.

These criminal alcohol sellers cannot be allowed to get away with it.
