NACADA to dispatch breathalysers to the counties

14 March 2014, 16:27 Wewe ni Wetu

Nakuru - The National Authority for Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA) has announced plans to buy more breathalysers and dispatch them to all counties in a bid to curb alcohol abuse.

According to Nacada chairman, John Mututho, breathalysers have helped reduce accidents in Nairobi hence the need to use them in other counties.

Addressing the press in Naivasha town, Mututho said Nacada is working with the National Transport and Safety Authority to buy the devices.

Mututho also noted the Authority will hold a crisis meeting today to discuss the Auditor General’s report that Nacada has lost more than KES 150 million.

"In the meeting, we shall discuss the report before deciding on our next course of action," the former Naivasha MP said.

Mututho said he was not surprised by the report as he had first raised the issue of funds misappropriation in 2010.

He said the anti-drugs authority is collecting samples of all brews in the market for testing and they shall put a notice in the newspapers calling on all brewers to present their samples.
