Few weeks ago deputy president Rigathi Gachagua talked about regulating bars in Kenya especially central Kenya saying every town should have one bar. The reason behind this was that central Kenya youths have turned to alcoholism where are not working.
Jeff Kuria from inooro FM interviewed bars association of Kenya chairman who explained what the government should do and how cheap liquor will leave you fighting tough health conditions. According to Simon Njoroge, he said that putting one bar per town cannot change anything since people will still go that one bar to drink.
He therefore advised Rigathi Gachagua to find out the type of alcohol being processed first since that is the head of the whole menace. He added that the government should involve them in fighting cheap alcohol which he termed as sorcery. He said no way alcohol can be sold at 100shillings only and at the same time making an empty alcohol bottle costs 67 shillings.
He said mostlythe manufacturers add a bit of roundup chemical in that cheap alcohol to make sure the thirst of alcohol will remain in the throat and the drunkard only gets satisfied after taking another same alcohol. He made it clear that if you take the cheap alcohol eating becomes very difficult since your stomach gets full of gas. Watch the video below.
