26 September 2013, 10:55 Wilshere

Nakuru - Nakuru County Commissioner, Mohammed Birik, Wednesday said that chang’aa brewing in estates is the real cause of insecurity in the County.

He said that his officers will not relent in the fight against illegal brew until the menace is wiped out completely.   

“Most of insecurity cases come are as a result of this illegal trade and that’s why we are more committed in the fight against this menace,” he said.

Speaking during a peace forum in Nakuru, Birik reiterated the government's commitment to fight insecurity in the country.   

Birik also noted that a huge number of youths in Nakuru County are still languishing in poverty due to consumption of the cheap illicit brew.

“Most of our youths have become useless because of this chang’aa business and this why we have to put a stop it,” he warned.
