Chief arrested for hidding illicit brew under the bed

04 July 2015, 17:42 Joseph Njung'eh

Murang'a - A Chief in Kigumo constituency, Murang’a County has been arrested after assorted second generation brews were found under his bed.

The chief, Stephen Kihara was not lucky after members of the public tipped off government officials who were searching for illicit brews in the area.

The County Commissioner, Kula Hache and area MP Jamleck Kamau ordered for the arrest of the chief who was among the crew investigating existence of killer brews.

The embarrassed administrator was taken to a local police post waiting to be arraigned in court for trial, with County commissioner saying that the chief will no longer continue serving as a civil servant after he is charged.

Hache said it was a shame for the administrator who is supposed to protect residents to engage in the sale of killer brew.

“We will not tolerate administrators who are perpetuating criminal activities and also those concealing information about unscrupulous business people who are selling the second generation brews,” explained Hache.

Before the chief's arrest, a consignment of second generation brews were impounded in a residential house at Kirere area.

Residents volunteered information which helped police officers and County administrators to trace the assorted brews which were stocked in a two-roomed house.

MP Jamleck Kamau blamed police and provincial administration officers for laxity in ending the menace.

“I wonder why these deadly brews are only found when the President has issued directive to end the problem and yet the officers have been on the ground all the time!” said Kamau.
