Illicit brews nabbed in Kiambu

06 March 2013, 18:38 Wangui Joseph

Police in Kiambu district on Monday nabbed some packages of illicit brews in locations of Karuri and Ruaka in Kiambu County.

The brews were suspected to have been supplied to area youths so that they could refrain from exercising their democratic right of voting.

They were packed in 500 Millilitres packets of plastic bottles.

This came just few weeks after a political hopeful had claimed that there was a plot to supply more brews in central Kenya in the eve of the elections day.

He made the assertions during a rally at Dagorretti during his vote hunting mission, and urged electorates not to indulge in alcoholic drinks during elections.

The brews were taken to Kiambu police station as more investigations over the matter commenced.

However, most pubs were not operating in Mount Kenya region during the March 4 general elections.

Operators of the alcoholic beverage business had gone to participate in the exercise too.

Moreover, bar owners in parts of Thika and Ruiru had pledged not to open their businesses on the D-day, emphasizing to their customers the need of sober voting.

In Thika town, businessmen were spotted asking their customers whether they had cast their votes prior to serving them.

The region has a history of illicit brews dominance which has affected locals economically and even their productivity.
