CAPE TOWN - The Western Cape Liquor Authority on Tuesday said the illegal alcohol sector was widespread.

It estimates there are between 25,000 to 30,000 unlawful liquor traders in the province.

Officials believed these shebeen owners posed a threat as they were not regulated.

The authority's Janine Darries said, “When you legalise a liquor trader, than automatically you can regulate their trading and it becomes easier for the person to trade.”

Milnerton police's Marius Stander said police members are often faced with the problems of illegal alcohol trading.

“It is a headache in the sense that we have to have extra resources…to contain and address those involved in illegal matters.”
