Molo - Brewers of illicit brew in Kasarani, Elburgon, violently attacked chief Ezekiel Karanja over crackdown on chang'aa leaving him with serious injuries.

The youths were blaming the chief for raids conducted by residents on the drinking dens, Daily Nation reports, leading to the destruction of hundreds of litres of chang’aa.
