Meanwhile, police in Naivasha are holding a woman who was found ferrying over 1,000lts of packaged chang’aa along the Nairobi-Nakuru highway.
The middle aged suspect was nabbed in Kinungi trading center 10kms from Naivasha on Thursday after a car she was using to transport the illicit brew stalled.
The driver of the vehicle managed to escape during the incident that attracted tens of members of the public eager to view the cargo.
The suspect who had hired the vehicle had incidentally lied to the owner that he was ferrying a relative to hospital.
A witness Adam Mwaura said that the driver and the woman were travelling from Western Kenya to Nairobi when the incident occurred.
Mwaura said that members of the public tipped off police on the suspicious cargo that was covered in clothes.
“The illicit brew was leaking and leaving behind a suspicious smell and police were called in and managed to arrest the man as the woman escaped,” he said.
A senior police officer who declined to be named confirmed the incident saying that the woman would be charged in court with ferrying illicit brew.
“The chang’aa was packed on sachets all headed to Nairobi but our officers have managed to arrest him and she will be charged in court,” said the officer.
