Illicit brew still a challenge in Kenya

07 September 2012, 13:36 Kelvin Wanjohi

Drinking of illicit brew has been one of the challenges faced in Kenya especially in Kiambu County. In Lari division this has been the case though no one has died or admitted to hospital as a result of illicit brew.

According to the deputy OCPD Lari division, Jonathan Kisaka, the police are trying to control the illicit brew spread by using the alcoholic act which enables police close down all bars which have not met the conditions outlined in the act. “We just allow such bars to sell what is remaining in stock and if that person is found selling after the agreed date then he or she is taken to court.” says the deputy OCPD.

He further says that about 75% of bar owners in the area are women yet every year women must demand for bars to be closed in the region. He said that to deal with this problem the public must report all those selling illicit brew and other harmful drinks to the police for action to be taken.

He further advised the public to keep off new drinks in the market as most of them contain chemicals which affect health and further make people become unproductive in the society while others neglect their duties.

Speaking in his office at Lari police station the OCPD said that large production of alcohol should be left for big companies who produce quality drinks, saying brews leave people distracted and hopeless and therefore those selling the brew should avoid turning Kenya into a drinking nation but rather a working nation.
