CLUB 263 in Bu­l­awayo suf­fered an­other pep­per spray at­tack on Mon­day, bring­ing to three re­ported cases at the es­tab­lish­ment with the man­ager say­ing it was the work of their en­e­mies.

The first time such an at­tack hap­pened at the venue was in April last year when the joint was then Cloud 9. The sec­ond time was in March this year when there was a stam­pede that led to the door at the club to be bro­ken down as the pa­trons, who had packed the joint, rushed out to get some fresh air.

On Mon­day one pa­tron who de­clined to be named said they were hav­ing a drink with friends and went to the toi­let at around mid­night.

“When I got back from the toi­let, I im­me­di­ately felt my eyes itch­ing and I started sneez­ing. Peo­ple rushed to the door try­ing to get some air. I’ve never ex­pe­ri­enced such,” said the pa­tron.

He said own­ers of the joint should take stern mea­sures to curb this from ever hap­pen­ing again.

“What if there was some­one who has asthma? They could’ve died af­ter in­hal­ing that pep­per spray. Or

They should catch these peo­ple and also they should beef up se­cu­rity,” he said.

DJ Obama, man­ager at the joint, said these pro­tracted at­tacks showed it was the work of en­e­mies of the joint.

“We still be­lieve it’s a planned work of our en­e­mies who are not happy with our suc­cess. It’s not a co­in­ci­dence that it al­ways hap­pens when the club is full and our com­pe­ti­tion empty. It also doesn’t make sense that some­one can just pep­per spray peo­ple for no rea­son, there has to be a mo­tive and the mo­tive is clear for all to see,” he said.

DJ Obama said they had re­ported the case to the police and had beefed up se­cu­rity.

“We’ve in­creased se­cu­rity and in­stalled cam­eras to make sure it does not hap­pen again. We’ve re­ported the is­sue to the police and we’re con­fi­dent that they will catch these peo­ple,” said DJ Obama. DJs on ro­ta­tion.
