Deputy president Rigathi Gachagua is set to convene a leaders’ conference to come up with radical measures to eliminate illicit brews and drugs in the central region on Friday the 14th of april.
The DP said it is no longer tenable for leaders to look away as alcohol and illicit drugs ravages the central region.
Gachagua said President William Ruto had instructed him to organize the meeting bringing together national, county, elected and administration leaders from the five counties in the Central region to come up with recommendations to deal with illicit brews and substances.
The Deputy President said relevant leaders from the region who will miss the conference will have to be answerable to the people.
“It will be unforgivable if we just sit back and watch as an entire generation is being wiped out. Friday will be a defining day for the future of this region,” he added.
“If we don’t intervene on Friday, in 10 years, the generation will be wiped out. I will take the bull by the horns. I am fearless in such matters. We cannot let 10 people become filthy rich at the expense of our young people,” he said.
