Liquor worth KES. 300,000 impounded in Thika joints operating without licences

A major crackdown on clubs and liquor joints operating illegally within Thika West Sub-County saw liquor worth about KES. 300,000 seized.

A multi-agency security team led by the Thika West DCC Douglas Mutai and the Thika Sub-County Admin Ng'ang'a Nyoroku on Thursday stormed into these illegal outlets in Makongeni and Kiganjo areas.

Speaking after the operation Mutai singled out Makongeni bus park area as very notorious in the sale of alcohol illegally, warning them they would intensify their fight against these joints until the area was free from those who risked the lives of others.

"We are ranking very high in COVID-19 infections and we need to trend very carefully to avoid a spike in the number of infections. No bar is allowed to operate and those who wish to sell wines and spirits must obtain the requisite licences from the County Government of Kiambu," he said. 

He reminded them that the government only gave out licences for wholesale and distribution of wines and spirits and not for sit-in clients
