It's not becoming any easier to take. Police have announced that the death toll from the Enyobeni pub has risen to 21, with all of the casualties officially classified as'minors' - those aged 17 or younger.
A 13-year-old boy is among the dead. A large number of underage drinkers are believed to have made their way to Enyobeni in East London to partake in post-exam celebrations. It's beyond our comprehension why these children believed this would be an appropriate site.

STAGE 4 LOAD SHEDDING WILL CONTINUE UNTIL WEDNESDAY.
Prepare yourself! Due to protests at some of its power stations, Eskom has announced that stage 4 load shedding will continue at least until Wednesday.
After negotiations broke down, the beleaguered power utility imposed stage 4 load shedding on Friday as a result of a strike by employees over pay. According to Eskom, the labor strike has caused delays in carrying out planned maintenance and repairs.
"Furthermore, in a number of power plants, the whole workforce has not reported for duty." As a result, unplanned generation losses have not been reduced as intended, forcing Eskom to maintain cautious steps to save generation capacity and protect plant from damage.
