Government closes 115 alcohol manufacturers

18 November 2015, 19:17 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The government has closed 115 alcohol manufacturers and put others on hold for failing to follow statutory requirements, Interior CS Joseph Nkaissery has announced.

The certificates of 41 others have been withdrawn at the moment.

Nkaissery said that the companies had failed to heed the required threshold and that the government would not allow them to serve Kenyans drinks that were not certified.

" The companies have failed to adhere to the strict requirements by the government and so stand closed," he stated Wednesday.

The crackdown comes just a few months after a move by President Uhuru Kenyatta asking Kenyans to deal with alcoholism directly, which saw members of the public close down what they believed was either illicit brew or second generation brews.

It is estimated that in the last six years, around 30,000 Kenyans have died either directly or indirectly from effects of illicit brews.
