County to demolish illicit brew outlets
Illicit and second generation brew manufacturers and vendors in Uasin Gishu have been warned of an impending demolition of their structures if they fail to stop the business.
The County Government of Uasin Gishu says that it will demolish all chang’aa and other illicit brew dens in the ongoing crackdown on illegitimate alcohol.
The government officials issued the warning during a raid that saw hundreds of litres of illicit brew destroyed and 15 people arrested in the outskirts of Eldoret Town.
The team, led by Uasin Gishu Deputy County Commissioner Michael Ang’anyo, found very corrosive chemicals used to clean metals and listed as dangerous to human health in one of the houses.
A man alleged to be on police’s watch list for rape was among those arrested.
