Uhuru condemns looting in the fight against illicit brews

06 July 2015, 11:46

Nairobi - President Uhuru Kenyatta cautioned Kenyans against theft and destruction of property even as they scale up the war against illicit brews.

Kenyatta, who was speaking in Kiambu Sunday during a church service emphasized that the crackdown on illicit alcohol will continue until the country is free of the menace.

“Destroy the illicit alcohol but do not burn people’s property. We want to destroy killer brews, not property,” the President noted.

He asked illicit brewers to start other businesses in their premises as there will be no backing down in the fight against illegal alcohol.

“The war against killer brews is necessary so that the youth can be part of national development,” he said.

Area MP, Jude Jomo said the ongoing crackdown has crippled the killer brew business in the County.

“The good thing is that the public is in total support of the move and has been at the forefront. The County Commissioner and police have also worked with us,” Jomo said.

Kiambu Woman Representative, Annah Nyokabi thanked Kenyatta for ordering the war against illicit brews and asked for more funds for women projects.

Kabete MP, Ferdinard Waititu said the war against illicit brews has been effectively carried out in Central Kenya but had not been fought well in Nairobi.

He also said a factory producing illegal alcohol was still operating at Kandara in Murang’a County, and blamed the police and government administrators of complicity in the illicit brew business.
