18 November 2015, 15:06
Mombasa - Nacada board member, Charles Njagua alias Jaguar has called upon the minister for Interior, Joseph Nkaissery to freeze all the accounts of Nacada over what he termed as misuse of funds by the board members.
Jaguar alleged that the board members had gone on a spending spree without putting into consideration drug addicts who are suffering in the streets.
“It’s like they have gone on a spending spree; some board members are now in Nakuru. I rejected the move and called upon them to hit the road campaigning against drug abuse but that has not been done,” said Jaguar.
He also supported the move by the security and administration committee to disband the board after it was accused of failing to do its job.

Speaking exclusively to News24, Jaguar said the board members had failed to undertake their mandate and accused the board members of misusing government funds.
“Currently as I am speaking to you, the board members are attending a workshop in Nakuru. You cannot solve the drug menace by sitting in a hotel conference hall,” said Jaguar.
He said they have tried to put Nacada in order but in vain because some board members are only there to steal.
The 'Kigeugeu' hit maker also called upon the government to reduce the cost of rehabilitating drug addicts.
“I recently visited a County rehabilitation center in Mombasa and per day it costs one addict KES 1 000. That is very expensive for the addicts who are mostly jobless,” said Jaguar.
He called upon the leaders to unite and fight drug abuse and give the youths hope saying they are the leaders of tomorrow.
