Protect my company, Keroche boss pleads with President

09 July 2015, 08:02 Jackson Okata

Nakuru - Keroche Breweries Limited CEO, Tabitha Karanja has asked the President to protect her company and other legitimate liquor companies from the ongoing crackdown on illegal alcoholic brews.

Karanja says that liquor products from some companies which are legally in the market are being targeted in the crackdown.

Addressing the press Wednesday at the company offices in Naivasha, Karanja said that some goons are plotting to invade the company and cause destruction.

She further noted that her company has been licensed and given the nod to operate by all government agencies.

“We are asking the government to protect liquor companies that are operating legally from the ongoing destruction. I wonder why my company is being targeted by politicians who have vested interests,” she said.

The Keroche CEO observed that all products produced by her company are standard, adding that Keroche will not resist inspection by government agencies.

“The government agencies mandated to carry out inspection are welcomed to inspect and assess our products,” she said.

She refuted claims that some of her company products are illegal, terming the allegations malicious.

Karanja reiterated that she supported the fight against illegal brews, saying that they have blighted the market.

She further called for tough laws on production and sale of alcohol in the country.
