Uhuru asked to form anti-liquor police squad

22 February 2016, 20:49 Joseph Njung'eh

Nyeri - Mount Kenya leaders have asked President Uhuru Kenyatta to form a new police unit whose duty will be to eliminate illicit brews.

The leaders including MPs, Senators, Governors, MCAs, religious and community leaders said the war against illegal brews should be a joint effort by all agencies.

“The same way the government formed anti-terror and anti-stock theft police units the same way we want a special squad that will fight brews,” said Dagorreti South MP, Dennis Waweru after a two-day meeting at Outspan Hotel, Nyeri.

Waweru, who is also the chairman of Central Kenya Parliamentary Caucus, said the meeting was attended by leaders from 11 counties including Kajiando, Nakuru, Laikipia, Kiambu, Meru, Embu, Tharaka-Nithi, Nyandarua, Nyeri, Kirinyaga, Nairobi and Nyeri.

They demanded closure of 115 alcohol manufacturing factories that had failed to comply with the necessary regulations by the Inter-Agency Task Force on control of Potable Combat of Illicit Brews and cancellation of licenses for any retail outlets selling illicit brews.

Waweru said alcohol manufacturing factories that are located in residential or non-industrial zones should also be closed down.

“Action including summary dismissal be meted on National and County administrators in whose jurisdiction illicit brews are found,” said Waweru.

Mukurweini MP, Kabando wa Kabando asked National Registration Bureau to put mechanisms of registering more than 1.2 million youths in the region whom he said have no identity documents.

Kabando further asked the IEBC to provide extra BVR kits to clear backlog by registering five million people who have not been registered as voters.
