Three houses around the tap, which have been the focus of the last nine days in which 21 people died, are fenced with barbed wire.
One of the neighbors, an old man who did not want to reveal his identity, says that he had to protect his property from annoying patrons who always set up their tents around their house.
“It’s always crowded here on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. It will be so crowded that you can not move in or out of your property. “
He says they have difficulty sleeping and have been involved in an incident where someone bumped into his car.
“They drink inside our gardens, even that day, they set up a table outside and drank inside my garden. This has been a difficult situation. “
Another neighbor, Nolitha Ntsangani, has also upgraded her barbed wire fence as she has woken up several times with people on her porch.
Ntsangani says they have accepted their situation but have now decided to try to defend themselves against invaders who came to their yard after their party at Enyobeni Tavern.
They say they got used to the noise, but sometimes they woke up from sleep with people talking next to the bedroom window and had trouble falling asleep again.
Says Ntsangani: “For the first time in a long time, last weekend was quiet and for the first time in a long time we had a peaceful sleep over the weekend.
When residents try to get used to strangely quiet lifestyles, they say that their only issue now is the influx of journalists from all over the country who are trying to interview them about the events of the fateful morning of 25 June.
Nine days have passed and the neighbors of Enyobeni Tavern have begun to feel charred in the media.
When the funeral takes place on Wednesday, they say they are looking forward to Thursday where their lives can return to normal.
