Government persists with Alcoblow despite court battles

10 March 2014, 23:03 William Korir

Nairobi - The government insists that use of Alcoblow is perfectly legal and will survive numerous battles in court.

The breathalyser device has been the centre of debate in the public domain over its legality with several cases ending up in court over its use.

On Monday the ministry of transport stood its ground over the legality of the device, saying arguments about its relevance and legality were not in order.

" The device is proper and it has been proven by health experts and the Kenya Bureau of Standards, Transport Principal Secretary Nduva Muli said.

He added that the clamour for alcoblow's removal was being led by persons who were against it for sinister reasons.

" Alcoblow has reduced the number of accidents on Kenyan roads. It has been a success story, he added.

Further, he said that there was no basis on arguments that insisted Alcoblow was no good because of its detrimental effect on the health of users.

" There is no proof to say that the device is a health risk. Those claims hold no water, he added.

There have been several court battles over the legality of the device and despite the never ending nature, Muli is adamant there will be no issues whatsoever.

" We are confident that you will see all those cases disappear, he added.

A Nairobi based bar owner is currently in court challenging the legality of Alcoblow.
