According to the charges Simon Karoki Zipporah was found manufacturing 200 litres of chang’aa on March 7 in Nyeri town.

Inspector Humphrey Ogutu told the court that Karoli was arrested by police officers who were on a patrol at the midnight of the said date, when they found him together with others not before the court, manufacturing the illicit brew a long a river bank near Githuariga primary school.

He added that the officers confiscated 180 litres of kangara, 20 litres of chang’aa and distilling pipe which he produced in the court as exhibits.

In mitigation, the accused pleaded for leniency saying that he has five children to cater for and they live with their grandmother because his wife is deceased.

The chief magistrate, Wilbrodah Juma reminded the accused that alcoholic manufacturers should posses a valid licence.
