Manufacturers of poisonous brews to be sued

21 August 2015, 21:41 Joseph Njung'eh

Nairobi - National Authority for the Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA) chairman John Mututho has warned that the Authority will sue manufacturers of alcoholic drinks which have caused deaths of hundreds of people to compel them to compensate their families.

Mututho said NACADA is collecting scientific data which will enable them file suits against the manufacturers.

He pointed out that the victims consumed the killer brews without knowing that they were laced with poisonous substance, thus the producers should be held liable for their deaths.

He said approximately 30,000 people have lost their lives after consuming poisonous alcoholic drinks since 2009.

“The constitution provides that anybody who offers services that cause harm to another person is liable to compensate their victims,” said Mututho.

He urged the families who lost their loved ones to alcohol to present their cases to NACADA to help build up their cases.

 “Those families who have post mortem results of their relatives confirming that the cause of death was consumption of poisonous alcohol should come forward and assist us in making the cases,” he appealed.

Mututho was speaking Friday when he visited a rehabilitation camp at Ihura Stadium in Murang’a town.
