Drug dealers in Nakuru warned

02 October 2013, 11:43 Wilshere

Nakuru - Director of Children in Nakuru County, Abdi Yussuf, has issued a warning to people selling drugs to school children in the County that they risk arrest.

Yussuf said that the law will not be lenient to anyone caught selling the illegal substances to children.

“We have received some information from members of the public that there are some people who are selling drugs to children and that’s why they need to stop before we catch up with them,” he cautioned.

Addressing the media on Wednesday in Nakuru, Yusuf said that street children in the County are the most affected lot by drugs.

He further said that officers from his department will be going round around the County smoking out people who are conducting the illegal business.

“Street children in our towns are the widely affected by these drugs thus the need to put to an end this drug business,” he said. 

Yussuf said plans are underway to rid towns of the street families and children in order to help reduce drug abuse among teenagers.

He also urged both parents and the public to help the government in fighting the drug menace in the country.

“We need to work as a team if we want to protect our children from drugs,” he said.

He further said cases of drug abuse have been on the increase among the youths due to high levels of poverty in the society.

The director also challenged the County government of Nakuru to create employment for the youths.
