NACADA calls for closure of bars in residential areas

27 May 2014, 10:09

Nairobi - The National Authority for the Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA) Chairman, John Mututho, has asked County Commissioners and the police to close down all bars operating in residential areas and learning institutions.

Mututho also directed owners of all alcoholic drinks outlets to submit their business documents to their respective County Commissioners by Wednesday for profiling.  

“Anybody who is selling alcohol anywhere must make documents available to their local county commissioners before close of business on 28th of May,” said Mututho.

The documents include single business permits from their county government, proprietors' liquor licenses by NACADA and county governments and public health certificates.

Mututho said a comprehensive list of all outlets which will have qualified will then be circulated to all police stations by Friday.

NACADA has been conducting tests on samples of liquor manufactured by all manufacturers in the country in a bid to ensure that only certified liquor is sold to consumers in the country in order to avoid deaths from illicit brews.

Mututho said that 60 percent of all alcohol sold in the country are unfit for human consumption.

He called on consumers to ensure that they bought only certified alcoholic products.

“You must ensure that you are buying from is a registered and truly deals with the companies who have undergone the vetting process and that is the only way that we are going to stay safe.
