Police Minister Bheki Cele says more must be done to close down illegal shebeens across the country.

Cele says illegal shebeens add to the high levels of alcohol abuse among young people while it also contributes to the high incidences of gender-based violence.

The Minister addressed residents in Langa yesterday and said those municipal officials who issue licenses to shebeens, illegally, should also be traced and arrested.
