Igembe South Deputy County Commissioner has ordered illicit liquor brewers and distributors in the area to cease the illegal business immediately and seek alternative ways of earning a living or face the full force of the law.

Speaking at Buriemaria Kiegoi Ward, Kosgey noted that although the level of alcohol consumption has reduced, the mission of the war on illicit brew and second generation liquor has not been fully achieved as a few notorious brewers are still operating the illegal business.

The commissioner also mentioned illicit brew as a major obstacle in development in the region, urging residents to help police in fighting the menace.

“We can only win this war through joint effort and this is the only way to protect our youths and securing their future,” said Kosgey.

Kosgey also called upon the locals to report any suspicious people that are likely to pose security threats to the resident, adding that the county government is working on the Nyumba Kumi initiative to enhance more security in the region.
