13 ARRESTED IN CRACKDOWN ON ILLICIT BREWS IN THIKA.

Police in Thika are holding 13 people arrested on Friday at Kamenu and Hospital Wards with over 1,500 litres of local brew and 37 cartons of second generation wines, some of which recovered in a store in Madaraka market.

Thika OCPD Erastus Muthamia and Thika District Administration Police Commander Samuel Ombonya led security personnel in the operation that lasted close to three hours which came after Ngoliba MCA, Griston Nguge complained of an increase in the number of idlers in the town who he accused of contributing to the deteriorating security in the town.

Those arrested were found either selling or consuming the brews and would be arraigned in court on Monday.

Thika is among towns in the country where crackdowns on illegal beer selling has consistently been conducted after President Uhuru Kenyatta declared war on the sale and consumption of substandard beer products.
