A nightclub has had its alcohol licence suspended after a teenager was stabbed and died on its doorstep.

Dan Namanga, 19, also known as Loni, from Wimbledon, was allegedly set upon by a crowd on August 8 at 2am outside Afrikiko in Old Kent Road, Peckham.

He died 50 minutes later.

Now the bar will not be able to serve alcohol or late-night entertainment for three months.

The decision was made by Southwark Council after there were reports of fighting and rowdiness around the club.

Tributes to Mr Namanga came in last month.

Cllr Edward Foley, for Merton Park ward, said: “Loni was a popular young man and I know how loved he was by all his friends. My thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.

“Knife crime is an increasing problem in south London. There is no excuse to carry a knife and everyone has a responsibility to prevent this type of crime.

“If anyone knows someone in possession of a knife, please tell them to use the special bins that are in some boroughs.”

Friends of Mr Namanga took to social media to comment on his death.

One user said: “Just goes to show how short life is and how nothing should be taken for granted. RIP Loni.”

Another wrote: “It just feels unreal to hear that Daniel Namanga has passed away. I just can't believe it, and the way he passed as well is traumatising news.

“You hear about this on the radio or news a lot of the time, but never have I heard about it being a friend from high school. Be blessed up in heaven daniel, rest easy.”

A 21-year-old man from Croydon will appear at the Old Bailey on October 31 charged with murder and possession of an offensive weapon.
