'Dros in Silverton is opened but there are no customers'

It's business as usual but relatively quiet at Dros in Silverton in Pretoria.

A 6-year-old girl was raped in the men's bathroom allegedly by a 20-year-old man over the weekend.

Eyewitness News reporter Bonga Dlulane is at the restaurant and has this report:

It's relatively quiet here so one does not know if that's the response because of the rape.

We did try to approach some of the waiters and waitrons there but apparently, they are not allowed to utter a word to the media because everything is being referred to the head office.

It's really empty and we are unable to really confirm if it's because people are punishing Dros or this is how they do before the dinner rush.

Listen to whether Dlulane was allowed to speak to people at the restaurant or not...
