Bars Propose Free Beer for Vaccinated Customers

Bars, Hotels and Liquor Traders Association (BAHLITA) has decided to offer free beers to customers who will be vaccinated inside their premises.

BAHLITA is also seeking to re-employ 90,000 workers who lost their jobs when 15,000 bars shut down during the pandemic.

The association tabled their proposal as an incentive to have the Ministry of Health use their establishments as Covid-19 vaccination centres on Friday, October 22.

Boniface Gachoka, BAHLITA  secretary, argued that bars have frequent customers like churches and hospitals and urged the Ministry to leverage this opportunity.

“Bars are gathering points for people and like churches, can become one of the places where people can be sure to access vaccines regularly." He stated.

“We extend an invitation to the Ministry of Health to collaborate with our members, especially the large establishments to provide vaccines to more Kenyan,” he added.

Frank Mbogo, the chairman, said that the bars would ensure that they adhere strictly to the Bar Kumi idea, a self-regulating mechanism to ensure adherence to the Covid-19 protocols.

“Our wish, which we can all help fulfil, is to have operations going back to normal and to never have again to shut down."

“We thank President Uhuru Kenyatta for vacating the curfew,” Mbogo appreciated.
