Under age kids in night clubs

Under age kids in night clubs

What happened to Under age in clubs 🔞

I remember back then when I was growing up, when I was under 18 to be precise entering a club wasn’t easy as it is today.
If I’m to a enter a club an amount of money was to be paid to the door bouncers and those where slim chances, and if I go through I wouldn’t maneuver, I would stay confined at one point because immediately I move all eyes would be on me and I would be chased.

Now let’s look at today, you would find the clubs are mostly crowded by teens who are under 18 years of age. You would find the same teens are the one’s even telling you “Seleni tupiteko” in a club if you’re in their way.

One would honestly wonder and question What happened to under age 🔞 In clubs?
Is it because we’ve an economic crisis In Zambia where by club owners don’t worry about who enters their clubs, all they care about is alcohol finishing in their chillers and them making a profit?
Well let’s look at the other side of the coin, These teenagers are becoming vulnerable to sexual activities because of what they see happening In clubs and in most cases some of them are failing to continue with their education and running away from homes due to these addictions and at the end of the day lives of these teenagers are ruined.

It’s not about starting to sale alcohol at 10:00hrs and saying there’s high consumption of alcohol in Zambia but it’s about who’s consuming that alcohol and implementing laws to reduce that.
the government should really look into this.

    Even in Chipata Town we have a hotel by the name of Crystal Springs.
    They keep functions for youth on the pool side. Then they bombard them with full blast music like a disco and alcohol is free flow.
    You get to see 16 yr olds drinking.
    Even walking out with alchohol in their hands.
    They also cause alot of disturbance to neighbours.
    We have reported to our authorities and waiting to see action soon.

    You are right, even our teachers then were very vigilant, if they found you in a bar, punishment would follow you to school. We used to fear our teachers as disciplinarians, today it is not common to find students and pupils drinking with their teachers or lecturers, not all of them but some of them.
