ODM MPs criticize crackdown on illegal alcohol

06 July 2015, 17:34 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - ODM MPs have criticized the crackdown on illegal alcohol, saying that it contravenes several laws.

Led by chairman John Mbadi, the MPs say that they have no issue with the crackdown but the manner in which it is being carried out.

There have been reports of licensed businesses being attacked by irate youth ad according to Mbadi, that is illegal and amounts to robbery with violence.

He has asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to ensure that no more legal businesses are attacked.

" It is okay for the crackdown to continue. Make no mistake, we support it, but we do not support the attack on legally licensed businesses. It is robbery," he said.

" The President and authorities have got to do something about this issue of looting even businesses that are legally protected. It must end and defeats the purpose if innocent Kenyans are going to be affected," he stated.

Eight people have died and scores more have been wounded in a crackdown in Kenya on illegally brewed alcohol, reports and officials said Saturday.

Hundreds of people have also been arrested, business premises destroyed and thousands of litres destroyed in the operation, sparked by government concern over rising alcoholism and a recent spate of deaths linked to illicit drinks.

The crackdown has focussed on central Kenya and Nairobi, where last year at least 80 people died and dozens more were blinded by concoctions laced with methanol, a chemical used for the manufacture of anti-freeze and used by some unscrupulous manufacturers to increase alcohol content.

The East African Breweries LTD EABL has already complained that its products have also been attacked and destroyed, despite them being of the required standard.
