Nakuru - Police in Nakuru have launched a manhunt for a notorious illicit brew dealer after hundreds of litres of kangara and changaa were netted after police raided his home at Mwariki estate.
The raid which was spearheaded by Nakuru County Commissioner Joshua Nkanatha, OCPD Joshua Omukatta and Nakuru West Deputy County Commissioner Elmi Shaffi saw more than 1, 800 litres of the illicit liquor impounded and spilled.
A consignment of apparatus used in the illegal brewery was also destroyed and some confiscated by the police.
County Commissioner Joshua Nkanatha urged the dealer Mr Geoffrey Muriuki to surrender to the police as his days were numbered.
More than 100 litres of chang’aa, a generator, and several sacks of charcoal were netted in the suspected dealer’s home.
Police are said to have raided the illegal brewery for six times other times during which the suspected illicit brewer always escaped the police dragnets.
The suspect has been employing various tactics to dodge the police traps by building high walls and constructing underground distillation troughs which cannot be easily detected.
