Mututho to build Africa's biggest rehab center

24 August 2016, 16:10

Nairobi - NACADA boss John Mututho is planning to put up what is being termed as Africa's largest rehab center.

The rehab center which will be located in Nakuru county will be an ultramodern one stop center which will be used for rehabilitating, sheltering, training and equipping drug addicts.

The center is expected to be complete with training facilities like gyms ,saunas, jacuzzis, swimming pools, a basket ball court, rugby and football fields, pool table rooms and modern hostels.

According to Mututho the rehab center which will have the capacity of hosting all drug addicts from across Kenya. And unlike other rehab centers which charge for their services ,Mututho says that his rehab center will offer free services.

"I want to put up a center where not only will we be rehabilitating these addicts but we will also train them and equip with life transforming skills. The center will not be charging anything and it will be the biggest rehab in Africa,"said Mututho.

"Once complete the rehab center will be able to accommodate thousands of addicts from across the country and even beyond and this will go along way in helping solve the problem and shortage of reform centers in the country,"he said.

Most rehab centers in the country are privately owned something which makes it hard for drug addicts from poor backgrounds to access the services due to the exorbitant amounts being charged Mututho has been pushing the government to establish government owned rehab centers to cater for over 30,000 drug addicts in the country who require rehabilitation.
