GACHAGUA orders a crackdown on illegal alcohol in Mount Kenya


Since illegal alcohol threatens to obliterate a generation of young people, especially in the Mt. Kenya region, Deputy President Rigathi Gachagua has urged national and county administrators to crack down on the practice.

Gachagua urged the county governments to control the issue of licenses for bars and pubs during a speech he gave on Thursday in Murang’a for the opening of the county’s bursary program. He said that the consumption of illicit alcohol had reached alarming proportions.

The second-in-command ordered all of the administrators, including the assistant chiefs, chiefs, sub-county commissioners, and regional commissioners, to work together to stop the threat.

“We will not tolerate a situation where young people are killed or rendered ineffective by the use of illegal alcohol. Alcoholism and drug abuse must be eliminated by the administrators.

The Ruto Administration won’t bargain over this regrettable situation, he declared.

Governor Kang’ata, Senator Joe Nyutu, Woman Representative Betty Maina, and Maragua MP Mary Wamaua were among the political figures who followed Gachagua. Others were Mathira lawmakers Erick Wa Mumbi Mwangi and Joseph Munyoro (Kigumo).

The leaders vowed to back Gachagua’s initiative to end drug use in the area.
