Komu Location Chief Daniel Waiguru, was on Saturdayattacked by unknown people in Kiandutu slums during a raid against illicit brews. He is alleged to have been accompanied by his two assistants when the attack happened but were lucky to escape without injuries.
This prompted Thika Town MP Alice Ng’ang’a to call on the government to introduce risk allowances to all the chiefs and their assistants. According to the legislature, the ongoing war on illicit liquor endangered the lives of these administrators as they were not armed.
“These people are always armed and we need to arm the chiefs too or else give them a special allowance to motivate them to engage the brewers. It’s risky for them to conduct the raids,” Ng’ang’a said.
She added that police officers in Thika could not always accompany the chiefs during the raids as they were engaged  in  patrolling the area where crime incidencts are increasingly on the rise.
Speaking at Thika PCEA Church after visiting the chief at his home, the legislator called upon her constituents to support the fight against brewing and inform the chiefs anytime they have information to make it easier for them to tame the incidences.
