NACADA: Over 6000 brands of liquor have entered Kenya

National Authority for Campaign against Alcohol and Drug Abuse (NACADA) has revealed that over 6,000 brands of liquor have entered the Kenyan market in the last one year.

NACADA Chair John Mututho, speaking to the press in Naivasha, said the country’s liquor market as per January 2014 had 3,000 brands of liquor.

The authority is now issuing a stern warning to all those involved saying they would face the full wrath of the law.

The authority notes that majority of the drinks are brewed locally noting that tests done on some of the products has revealed the presence of lead residue.

Mututho at the same has revisited the issue of banning the consumption of alcohol in the country for two days before the general elections.

He termed alcohol as an ingredient of chaos and poor decisions making adding that the authority would propose to the Senate and Parliament to consider the issue.

The former Naivasha MP pointed to India as one of the countries that had benefited from such a law with the electorate making sober decisions.
