Nakuru - A row is brewing between the Nacada boss, John Mututho and Kebs officials after he questioned the manner in which licenses were being issued in Nakuru.
Speaking at Nakuru’s Bahati area after leading a crackdown on illicit brew, Mututho accused Nakuru County Health officials and Kebs officers of issuing licences to bogus companies.
“Some Health officers and Kebs officials in this County should be behind bars as we speak. I will ensure they are arrested,” he warned.
“In the process of the operation, it has come to our attention that some premises have fake licences in their possession. Somebody needs to take responsibility of this,” fumed Mututho.

According to him, some officers were taking advantage of unsuspecting businessmen to defraud them by issuing fake operating documents.
He further questioned the eligibility of such officials, arguing they had issued licenses to factories manufacturing poisonous products.
Mututho said KEBS should stop issuing clearance certificates for products before testing their suitability for human consumption.
