Bars flouting rules risk closure

08 November 2013, 15:05 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - Bar and pubs owners operating beyond the stipulated time within Nyeri County risk hefty fines and closure, area deputy governor, Samuel Wamathai, has said.
Wamathai said the County government has drafted an Alcoholic Bill and forwarded it to the County assembly for adoption or amendment.
The Bill, he disclosed, has proposed hefty fines to violators, which are equivalent to three warnings; owners who will be caught thrice risk losing their business licenses.
It will be tabled in the county assembly once members of the County Assembly resume work.
Speaking to the media at Green Hills Hotel Friday morning, Wamathai said the law has to be adhered to.
He noted that the County cannot record any meaningful development with majority of its workforce being drunk or dedicating much of their time to alcoholism.
“We cannot sustain or advance economically with a community that is drunken 24 hours,” Wamathai stated, saying that alcoholism has perpetrated domestic violence in the region.
His sentiments came only a week after the area County Commissioner, Micheal Mwangi, banned parties by school-leavers.
Mwangi warned that legal and severe measures will be taken against any liquor businessman who goes against the ban.
