Mount Kenya counties to table uniform Alcoholic Bill

09 March 2016, 15:31 Joseph Njung’eh

Nairobi - A group of 11 County Assemblies in Central Kenya will table a uniform Alcoholic Bill to govern liquor trade in the region.

Mount Kenya MCAs’ caucus chairman, Duncan Gituanja said the Bill will assist in fighting illicit liquor menace in the region including Nakuru, Laikipia, Nyandarua, Meru, Embu, Tharaka Nithi, Nyeri, Kirinyaga, Kiambu, Murang’a and Nairobi Counties.

Gituanja said the MCAs resolved to enact the law following a meeting with President Uhuru Kenyatta and another one with regional leaders in Embu County.

“The counties which already have the Alcoholic Act will amend it so that it can be similar to that of other counties. We are fighting killer brews from a common front,” said Gituanja who is also Nyeri County Assembly Majority Leader.

He noted that the 603 MCAs in the region agreed to support the Bill when it comes to their respective County Assemblies, noting that licensing of businesses is a function of the Devolved Governments.

He spoke while addressing press at White Rhino Hotel grounds in Nyeri town.

Gituanja explained that the new laws will regulate licensing of bars in the Counties to ensure only legalized and healthy brews are in the market.

Recently, the MCAs together with the regional MPs had called for destruction of houses and vehicles found housing or transporting illicit liquor.

The leaders also called for dismissal of national and county administrators whose jurisdiction has the brews.
