Controversial author Jackie Phamotse headed to her Twitter page to weigh in on the tragic shootings that come hot on the heels of the death of teenagers at a tavern in East London.

According to TimesLIVE, the author believes the death at taverns is a way to sabotage the township economy. She said she believes someone is trying to create the narrative that township taverns are not safe.

"Someone is trying to sabotage Township Economy, creating explosive agendas that black peoples taverns are unsafe. Forcing the government to revoke licenses. While they prepare their own “Tavern Rollout” to control alcohol sales and business. “New Taverns” will pop us soon."
