Othaya MP Mary Wambui has put alcohol manufacturers on notice over the production of second-generation alcohol.

Speaking during the ongoing crackdown on illicit liquor in Othaya, Wambui said she would not allow the sale and consumption of illicit and second-generation brew in her constituency.

She lauded the ongoing campaign to flash out illicit alcohol from the constituency, saying the operation has been a success and vowing to continue with the operation.

“Communities have already noticed a change in men who previously used to wake up in chang’aa dens, but now head to the shamba in the morning,” she said.

Wambui also called on alcohol outlets to work within the confines of the law by remaining operational within stipulated hours and selling liquor certified by the Kenya Bureau of Standards as safe for human consumption.

Meanwhile, Women at Tetu Constituency in Nyeri County have vowed to carry on with the crackdown on illicit liquor.

Speaking in Wamagana, the women warned alcohol outlets’ owners against selling illicit liquor saying they will close down any business that engage in illegal sale of alcohol.
