'Be vigilant against illicit brews'

12 June 2013, 16:59 Kelvin Mureithi

Meru County Commissioner Chege Mwangi has directed all chiefs and their assistants to remain vigilant in a move to mop up illicit brews within the County.

Speaking to the media at his office on Wednesday, Chege said major operations were ongoing against illicit brewers and consumers who had reluctantly refused to abandon the practice despite repeated arrests and warnings.

He promised to take the matter personally in case the local leadership failed to curb the challenge.

He however expressed confidence in fighting the vice saying several brewers had been arrested since Tuesday with culprits receiving heavy court fines.

“I am happy to report that one brewer, David Kaimenyi, from Kiriamantune village was fined KES 100 000 by a Meru Court. This should sound as a warning to those fond of re-engaging in the activity on grounds that they will secure their freedom,” said the County Commissioner.

The Commissioner noted that some brewers engaged in the vice knowing that they will afford court fines imposed on them.

He said his team had marked regions that were known for proliferation of the illicit brews.

Chege promised to ensure the County stays free from illicit brews among other illicit drugs.
