Bar operators decry low business in the wake of illicit brew deaths

13 May 2014, 10:24 Oduor Omondi

Homa Bay - Wines shops in Homa Bay County have recorded low business following the recent wave of alcohol related deaths in parts of the country.

A spot check revealed that revelers who normally frequent drinking dens kept away over the weekend for fear of imbibing lethal brews.

Joseph Ombudho, a regular partaker of second generation spirits packed in plastics said he has kept off his favorite drinking den for the past one week for fear of becoming a victim.

“The government should consider waiving duty on Senator keg to enable us access regulated hygienically produced beer affordably, otherwise more Kenyans will lose lives through consumption of lethal brews,’’ he said.

He added that malted beers were expensive and majority of low income earners had been locked out of the market.

Nancy Akinyi, a bar operator in Homa Bay town said for the past one week, the number of patrons in her pub had decreased with majority taking only one or two beers before leaving early fearing that the famous Muthuto laws would be applied more stringently.

Meanwhile, a cleric in Homa Bay County on Sunday condemned the upsurge of consumption of illicit brews across the country with the resultant deaths.

Addressing a congregation at Adhiedo Lolwe fellowship church, Pastor Pius Oplong asked the government to crack the whip on those behind the production and distribution of the brews.

He said only salvation could save the country from social vices including alcoholism, promiscuity and corruption.
