05 January 2016, 08:05
Nakuru - A Nakuru bar and its proprietor has found itself in an awkward position after selling alcohol to four teenagers who perished in a grisly road accident at the Salgaa black spot on New Year's Eve.
The National Authority for Campaign against Alcohol and Drug use (NACADA) has said it will revoke the bar's licence and take the owner to court for selling alcohol to teenagers.
Nacada boss, John Mututho said that the Agency has already identified the bar that sold alcohol to the teens before they met their death.
Speaking Monday when he visited the Salgaa black spot, Mututho said the teens would not have died were they sober.
"The bar that sold alcohol to the teenagers will have its licence revoked and we will definitely take the owner to court to face charges of flouting the law by selling alcohol to underage children," said a furious Mututho.
He added: "If the young men were not drunk, they would not have died and we have to hold someone accountable."
Mututho also lashed at parents for neglecting their parental responsibilities, something he said has led to moral decay in today's society.
