City shuts down noncompliant nightclubs
​EThekwini Municipality shut down two nightclubs
along Bluff Road and Tara Road, south of Durban,
during a joint enforcement operation.
TO ENSURE that business owners abide by the law, eThekwini Municipality recently conducted an enforcement blitz along Bluff Road and Tara Road, south of Durban, where two nightclubs were shut down for failing to comply with City by-laws.

The establishments were shut down during a joint enforcement operation conducted by the City’s South Durban Basin (SDB) Area Based Management (ABM) team and various other law enforcement authorities. One nightclub owner was also prosecuted on 28 July because he was found trading without a proper business license.

The purpose of the operation was to create a safe and drug- free City and provide a platform for intergovernmental departments to educate, inspect and enforce various legislation applicable to nightlife establishments. The SDB ABM Municipal Services Manager, Sifiso Xulu said: “We received complaints from community leaders who are concerned about the safety of young people in Wentworth and we had to respond by organising a night raid.

We conduct these enforcement operations weekly.” Xulu added that the SDB has formed a strong partnership with the Southern Area Business Forum which assists the City to interact with business in the area, identify challenges and give feedback on how the City is addressing their concerns.

KZN Liquor Authority Inspector Penelope Cele said that joint operations ensure businesses comply with the laws that govern nightclubs. “We are pleased to work with the SDB ABM as they bring all crucial and relevant role players together during these operations,” she said.
