Large amount of chang’aa confiscated in Homabay County

04 June 2014, 21:45

The national government through the Rapid Result Initiative (RRI) in the last 100 days managed to confiscate 44,000 litres of chang’aa and bhang worth KES 4million in Homabay County.

Homa bay County Commissioner, Samuel Joseph Otieno cited that the illicit brews were netted by security officers from those practicing illegal trade in Chabera trading centre, along Sondu Miriu river banks in Rachuonyo South, Shauri yako slums, Makogeni estate and Katuma in Asego division where the illicit brew business is rampant.

The County Commissioner appealed to the youth to shun from engaging in drug and substance abuse saying that the security patrols will be intensified in the entire county to firmly deal with those found trading in the illicit brews which prevents people from involving in meaningful incoming generating activities.

Otieno also said that security personnel will be deployed in the Kenyan islands of Remba, Takawiri, Rigiti and Mfangano so as to protect fishermen in Lake Victoria against attacks from pirates from neighboring countries.

He called on the residents of the islands to be cautious of aliens holding secret meetings and report such people to the relevant authorities, stressing that those islands are on Kenyan land.

The administrator further challenged youths who have attained the age of 18 and above to apply for national identity cards instead of waiting for electioneering period.

He added that after acquiring identity cards the applicant should apply for voting card, saying voter registration is a continuous process and there is no secret about it.
