MAUN: Fun lovers in Maun find themselves in limbo as authorities crackdown on what it calls alcohol related public nuisance on Maun streets. Village revellers are accused of illegal gathering in front of nightclubs, littering, indulging in sex and throwing used condoms in the rivers and in front of nightclubs.

The crackdown launched by the by-law enforcement in the North West District Council (NWDC) is in the form of nightclubs closure and sealing off popular river bank spots commonly referred to as  “beaches’ by revellers.  Many are complaining that the crackdown will affect local tourism in Maun over the festive season.

This week NWDC rescinded the licence and ordered Trekkers Nite Club to shut down immediately for alleged non-compliance with operation procedures.  They allegedly violated some of the conditions of their licence by operating beyond the stipulated hours. The closure left 24 employees of the club who include bar attendants, DJs and security personnel in limbo.
