People residing next to Newlands stadium are outraged by the amount of drunkenness they see during rugby matches.
Jean called in to tell John Maytham that there are open braai fires under the trees at the back of our houses, loud music from car radios, shouting and swearing for about 16 hours throughout rugby seasons.
Residents are putting the blame on the Groote Schuur Primary School, which offers rugby fans parking. The school yard is then used for braaing and parties before and after the matches (all day long).
Listen to the full conversation on the John Maytham Show:
We have to endure between 12 and 16 hour of loud music, drunken behaviour, shouting, people urinating against our walls and braai smoke coming into our houses …— Jean, Caller in Newlands
We have to live our properties sometimes because it’s so bad— Jean, Caller in Newlands
The school has been warned plenty of times that they cannot have alcohol on their premises— Jean, Caller in Newlands
