Kiambu Assembly passes the Alcoholic and Water Bills into law.

Yesterday's plenary session at Kiambu County Assembly that passed the two crucial bills.

Kiambu County Assembly on Tuesday passed two Bills; The Alcoholic Drinks Control Amendment Bill and the Kiambu County Water and Sanitation Bill.

The Alcoholic Drinks Control Bill seeks to regulate the manufacture and sale of alcohol in the region. It has guidelines on licensing of brewers and control of illicit brews in the county.

Former Naivasha Member of Parliament Hon. John Mututho paid a courtesy call to the Speaker Hon. Stephen Ndicho who had chaired the plenary sessions.

Kiambu Governor Ferdinand Waititu has declared war on alcoholism in the county and has vowed to eliminate all dangerous alcoholic drinks from being sold to our innocent men and women. 

Waititu has warned that dangerous drinks sellers will not get a space in the county to operate and asked them to leave the county.

The second bill will be key in addressing matters water and Sewerage where it creates the establishment of Kiambu County Water, Sewerage and Sanitation Company, merging all the 12 water companies into one umbrella.

The new company will acquire all assets and liabilities of the former companies.

Waititu’s plan to dissolve water companies in Kiambu had previously sparked dispute with a section of residents terming it as ill-informed.

However, the governor’s resolve was unstoppable branding those opposing the plans as cartels who have been running water business in the region. According to him, the move was aimed at improving service delivery.
