    As a tourist to your country, I am very saddened to hear this news. My 79 year old mum, myself and my friend went to a shabeen at night on at least 3 occassions on our last visit to Cape Town. We were advised not to go as it was “dangerous for white people” to go. I am glad to say we ignored the warnings as we encountered nothing but the hospitality of the local people and plan to return if it is still open. Seems to me, like they should concentrate on closing shabeens where there are persistant problems but leave the peaceful ones open for us all to enjoy. I only wish the local pubs here in the UK were as friendly as the shabeens we have visited.
