Bar owners in Murang’a arrested for flouting laws

19 March 2015, 22:31 Joseph Njung’eh

Murang'a - Several bar owners in Murang’a town have been arrested by Public Health Officers accompanied by police officers for flouting business laws.

The majority of those who were nabbed were found operating without valid licenses, while others were arrested for operating business before the stipulated time.

Murang'a County Government Administrator, Jeremiah Mwiregi, said they were forced to crackdown the illegal business after members of the public raised alarm about bars which start operating as early as 6 am.

The arrests happened barely two weeks after local authorities complained about licensing of liquor outlets in Murang'a that has led to circulation of substandard liquor brands in the market.

The County Commissioner, Kula Hache, had accused the county government for issuing licenses, which are not conversant with the requirement to Alcoholic Control Act 2010.

Mwiregi said they have noted the complaints and thus they will continue conducting impromptu investigation to arrest all those who are operating illegal drinking dens.

“We will carry out inspection in various centres to arrest the culprits as the trend of operating illegal bars and selling liquor at wrong time is perpetuating alcohol abuse in the county,” said the administrator.

Mwiregi further warned operators found selling liquor before and after the stipulated time that they risk losing their licenses.
