Five arrested over illicit brew

16 September 2013, 11:28 Murule Remmy

Naivasha - Police have arrested five people and seized 3 000 litres of illegal brew in the Kasarani village in the outskirts of Naivasha town.

Confirming the incident, Naivasha Sub-county Commissioner, Mohammed Abass, said the suspects were arrested on Sunday.

The sub-county commissioner added that the police had destroyed the equipment used for the brewing exercise and identified two people among the arrested as “notorious brewers” who have been in the practice for long each time and serially evading police.

The seizure comes in the wake of the government declaring war on drug and substance abuse, which are blamed for the increased insecurity in various parts of the country.

Alcohol abuse is also one of the leading causes of the increased number of dropout cases in the country at large.

Abbas said similar raids would be conducted in a bid to curb the illegal practices.
