Mozambique’s Office of Prevention and Combat Against Drugs (GPCD) said the young people are between the ages of 16 and 25.

“Students mix alcohol with soft drinks and it becomes difficult for teachers to notice that their students are consuming alcohol and these are the cases we have seen in hospital units in Maputo,” said Jafete.

The office has held lectures and campaigns in several schools in Maputo to combat the trend, and Jafete appealed to parents and guardians not to give their children large sums of money.
