A protest against the opening of a Port Elizabeth-based drug centre turned ugly on Friday morning when members of the community prevented government officials from accessing the treatment centre.

Social Development Minister Bathabile Dlamini, who is also the president of the ANC Women's League, was left emotional and in tears after people hurled insults at her, saying she was drunk from expensive whisky.

According to Herald Live, Dlamini was accompanied by government officials. As seen in the video, they too were not allowed to declare the R67 million Ernest Malgas drug treatment centre open.

The centre is set to help teenagers between the ages of 13 and 17 overcome substance abuse. It is located in the suburb of New Brighton.
