NACADA threatens to prosecute liquor stores

04 February 2014, 13:10

Nairobi - Liquor store owners risk prosecution if they do not produce government licenses issued by National Campaign against Drug Abuse Authority (NACADA).

NACADA Chairman, John Mututho, said all bar owners in the major cities and parts of the Rift Valley must adhere to the directive.

“If you have are a bar owner with a license issued to you by NACADA you should have it copied and be ready to give it to NACADA once you are requested,” he said.

Mututho meanwhile denied being summoned by the Cabinet Secretary for Internal Security, Joseph Ole Lenku, saying that he had not received any letter or summons.

It has been alleged that Lenku had summoned Mututho over the wrangles that have bedeviled the agency in the recent weeks.

Mututho has for several weeks claimed that the NACADA Chief Executive Officer, William Okedi, should be dismissed on grounds of embezzlement of some KES 400 Million that the agency allegedly could not account for.

He added that an audit report that was carried out recommended that the senior managers at the agency step aside in order for investigations to be carried out.

The NACADA scandal is one of the many corruption-related scandals that have riddled the Jubilee government.

Others include the Standard Gauge Railway project and the multi-billion Tassia II project of the NSSF.

The NACADA scandal is believed to have been conceived through issuance of fake liquor licenses to bar owners by NACADA officials in exchange for license fees.
