Central Kenya MPs declare war on killer illicit brews

16 June 2015, 22:15 Samuel Kisika

Nairobi – MPs from Central region have declared war on killer illicit brews and drug abuse affecting lives of many youths and making them irresponsible in family issues.

The more than 14 legislators drawn from Nyeri, Kiambu, Embu, Murang’a and Meru counties led by Dagoretti South MP, Dennis Waweru said they are launching a two-week campaign staring from Embu next week to ensure youths desist from illicit brews and drug abuse.

“As Central Kenya caucus MPs, we are concerned with the problem of illicit alcohol and drug abuse among our people especially youths. We are going to stop at nothing and nothing is going to stop us in the campaign against alcoholism destroying our people,” said Waweru.

However, the legislators issued a 7-day ultimatum to Interior Cabinet Secretary Joseph Nkaissary and the National Authority for the Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA) officials to convene a meeting with the region’s MPs to agree on how the problem can be eradicated in the region promptly.

“NACADA and the Interior ministry have failed to implement the presidential directive in moving with haste to deal with alcoholism and drug abuse in central region and other parts of the country. NACADA police officers should be properly facilitated to deal with the vice by ensuring distributors and retailers such substances are prosecuted,” said Waweru.

The MPs said they fully support President Uhuru Kenyatta’s war against drug trafficking and abuse and maintained that ships or vehicles found ferrying such harmful substances should be destroyed and responsible culprits brought to book.

This comes at a time when private parts of two men were chopped off by their wives in central region because of heavy drinking at the expense of providing for their families.

The MPs were speaking at a press conference at Parliament Buildings and others included; Mary Wambui (Othaya), Alice Ng’ang’a (Thika Town), Priscillah Nyokabi (Nyeri County MP), Peter Weru (Mathira), Njoroge Baiya (Githunguri), Mary Njoki (Nakuru) and John Waiganjo (Ol Jororok) among others.
