Nairobi - There is shortage of Keg beer in Nyeri and neighbouring counties, EABL has said.
The East African Breweries Limited (EABL) Managing Director, Jane Karuku said the shortage is due to insufficient sorghum in the country.

Keg is among cheap brews in the market made to counter existence of second generation and illicit liquor.
Karuku said last year the company contracted 30,000 farmers to plant sorghum in Narok, Tharaka Nithi and Makueni counties who later pocketed KES.800 million.
“This area is somehow dry and sorghum can do well. We shall work together to see how local farmers can supply us with sorghum,” said Karuku in Nyeri at Mweiga town.
She asked the public to report to the authorities bar traders violating Mututho laws.
