Governor asks residents to keep off alcohol, drugs

26 December 2014, 19:16 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Nyeri Governor, Nderitu Gachagua has appealed to his constituents to keep off drugs and alcohol during the festive season.

Gachagua instead challenged the public to reach out to those in need and also direct their energy in building the nation.

“I call on each of you to reach out to those members of our society who need our help most and extend the spirit of generosity so that they can cheer too. It is extending God’s grace,” said Gachagua.

The remarks were contained in his Christmas and New Year message that was read on his behalf by deputy Governor, Samuel Wamathai.

Nyeri and other counties in Central Kenya have been hitting headlines over addiction to alcohol.

“Avoid any form of over indulgence particularly in alcohol or any reckless liaisons that would result to distress and regret after the festive season,” Governor Gachagua warned.

He further asked motorists to be cautious while driving to avoid accidents and road carnage.

“Be careful while driving or in making merry with others so as to avoid any incidents that would depress joy and mood of the season,” he stated.

Christmas is the most magical time of the year, Gachagua noted, urging people to share with each other the joy and goodness that was bequeathed to humanity through the birth of Jesus Christ.
