Interior CS declares war against selling of illicit alcohol and drugs

Interior Cabinet Secretary (CS) Kithure Kindiki has declared war against those selling illicit alcohol and drugs in the country.

According to the CS, together with the county governments they have launched crackdowns against the production, sale, and distribution of illicit liquor and drugs that threaten Kenya’s stability.

He declared the need to take decisive and urgent measures against the trade.

“Alcohol laced with chemicals and hard drugs constitute another threat to our nation,” he said.

He cited the growing population of young people imbibing substandard and unregulated alcohol.

“Unless we do something, and do it quickly, this country faces a serious generational crisis. We cannot allow a profit to one brewer to cause losses to the entire nation,” he said.

The CS also called for full support from regional and county security teams, in keeping Kenya safe.

“The work of our security agencies is to ensure that our country is safe and they should not be involved in matters politics,”

This follows the directive by President William Ruto, against the backdrop of sustained attacks by the bandits in Baringo, Turkana, West Pokot, Elgeyo Marakwet, Laikipia and Samburu.
