Bungoma: Man dies after winning alcohol drinking competition

A 28-year-old man died on Monday morning after consuming excessive alcohol in a drinking competition at Mukosi village in Kimilili Constituency, Bungoma County.

The deceased and other locals converged at a drinking den in the area on Sunday night at around 9pm when they embarked on a binge drinking that would later turn tragic.

Those who agreed to take part in the competition were handed a five-litre bottle full of chang’aa and the winner was to walk away with Ksh.1,000 only.

According to one of the village elders, Margaret Waswa, soon after the competition the 28-year-old collapsed with some of the revellers opting to take him home to sleep while others fled the scene.

He was confirmed dead on Monday morning with his body being moved to Kiminini Funeral Home in Trans Nzoia County.

Police have since launched a crackdown to nab those involved in the sale of the illicit brew.
