Nairobi - More than 50 police officers who were sacked after illicit alcohol killed more than 100 people in five counties have been reinstated.
Sources said some of the officers had threatened to challenge their sacking in court, forcing the government to quickly have them reinstated, The Standard reported.
The officers were interdicted in May after more than 100 people died after consuming the killer brew.

The deaths also led to the sacking of the National Authority for Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse chief executive, William Okedi, and his anti-counterfeit agency counterpart, John Akoten, but they were recalled later.
