01 July 2014, 17:23
Nairobi - NACADA chair John Mututho has said Machakos Governor Alfred Mutua is to blame for the chaotic scenes at the Masaku sevens tournament which took place over the weekend.
According to Mututho, the event was a disaster as there were cases of children as young as 11 years old being sold alcohol.
He insisted that there should have been more policing at the event which is said to have attracted upto 20,000 people over the weekend.
He added that he would chase relevant legal avenues to level the blame squarely on the Governor.
" What I witnessed there was chaos. It was the proverbial Sodom and Gomora ten times and over, he said Tuesday.
" I have evidence both photographic and in video form that there was sale of alcohol to young kids and that there was abuse of may laws there, including sale of drugs and other illegal substances, he added.
Mututho said that the event was a good idea but added that there should have been better supervision.
" It is a good idea but there should have been better supervision. I have received complaints from many quarters about the on-goings on the weekend, he complained.
He also insisted that there would be higher supervision in future festivals which are held in Nakuru and Kisumu and even Nairobi.
The Masaku sevens tournament has been highly frequented by Nairobians looking for fun in the outskirts of the city.
