Moses Kuria puts chiefs, police on notice over alcohol businesses

Controversial Gatundu Member of Parliament Moses Kuria has put chiefs and police officers in his area under notice over the ongoing war on illicit brews.

Kuria told the chief and police officers to choose between doing their work or engage in business accusing a section of them of engaging in alcohol businesses.

“From today you must decide whether you want to sell beer or remain in public service. As long as am the local MP you will not do both because you will compromise war against second generation drinks, drugs and your job,” said Kuria.

Kuria called on Kiambu Deputy County Commissioner Stephen Kiragu Kihara and Gatundu OCPD Bernard Muli to crackdown on cops and administrators involved in beer business.

His Kabete counterpart Ferdinand Waititu said the war on second generation alcohol must be carried out in all fronts adding that it can be defeated just like the outlawed sect Mungiki was defeated.

“If we wiped the mungiki sect no doubt we will wipe out the second generation liquors,” said Waititu.

The Kabete MP – who is said to be eying the Kiambu Gubernatorial seat in 2017 polls – has been in the forefront in the war against illicit brew and second generation li2quor.

The war on illicit liquor and second generation alcohol started following a presidential directive to have such drinks stopped.

So far, over 30 million litres of illicit and suspected second generation alcohol has been destroyed across the country.
