The Sole Town In Kenya Where Selling Or Drinking Of Alcohol Is Illegal And Can Get You Jailed

Read and study photos:

Kenya is home to many cities, many of which were established during the colonial era. When they first emerged, some cities served as administrative, commercial, educational, religious, or even transportation hubs.

Kiambu County's Kijabe serves as a perfect example. Kijabe is well-known as a stop on the route between Nairobi and Nakuru due to the presence of the Kijabe Hospital and the constant coolness of the weather.

However, many Kenyans are clueless about the fact that certain lawful behaviors remain forbidden even outside of Kijabe. The town was established as a religious center by missionaries, therefore many things are forbidden since they are considered ungodly. This includes the buying, selling, or consumption of alcoholic beverages anywhere in Kijabe.

This is made clear to new investors, and if anyone is seen selling or drinking alcohol, they are taken before the council of elders, who may then denounce them to the local police or chief.
